"The idea that an inanimate object can change your humour, affect your mood, is remarkable - the dress that makes you feel wonderful, the quilt that comforts you, the room that calms or enchants you". For John Rocha, design is about balance and beauty, and their celebration in the raw material. This understanding of the organic state - whether fabric, glass, wood or stone - is the key to an aesthetically pleasing and functional creation. Four simple elements define his work: texture, form, purity and detail, and they create a coherent design philosophy that unites his clothes and home collections, and his architectural and interior designs.These elements are the focus of this book.
John Rocha is renowned for his use of contrasting textures and muted colours, marrying age-old materials and techniques with contemporary shapes. His clothes are modern and yet eternal, his pieces for the home are luxurious, but deeply practical. These principles have also been translated into the design and craftsmanship of his crystal collection and applied to architecture and interior design to create buildings and homes that nurture rather than dominate their owners. John Rocha believes that there are no limits in design and this freedom allows him to move effortlessly from people to homes and beyond. "Texture. Form. Purity. Detail" is a very special and superbly illustrated study of John Rocha's work and a unique insight into his philosophy.
John Rocha was British Designer of the Year in 1994 and his fashion collections are received each year with great success. In 1997 he launched 'John Rocha at Waterford Crystal' and he has also moved into interiors, collaborating in the design of the interior of "The Morrison Hotel" in Dublin, as well as residential projects in Ireland and the UK. John Rocha was awarded a CBE in the Queen's Jubilee New Year's honours list in 2002 for his contribution to the fashion industry.
