David Chipperfield Architects has appointed Baddeley Brothers to produce materials to support its exhibition at the Design Museum.


The David Chipperfield - Form Matters exhibition runs until the end of January next year at the London venue, for which Baddely Brothers printed 1000 folders and 150 private invitations.

The company also produced a range of stationery, including letterheads, postcards, and business cards, for the RIBA award-winning firm's offices in London, Berlin, Milan and Shanghai.

The design was developed by John Morgan Studio, which worked with Baddeley Brothers on producing the materials using traditional methods.

Rik Nys, head of communications at the architect said: "Architects tend to choose bold colours and brash logos, but we were very keen to choose a subtle design that conveyed integrity... The choice of using the beautiful embossed die stamping technique has been received extremely well, fulfilling expectations and meeting practical requirements. Our new stationery is close to being simply standard, but for those who choose to recognise the detail, it really stands out."

The 150-year-old Baddeley Brothers has 25 staff and is based in Hackney, London.
