The making of ‘Halide – A Journey into Grey’

Jotta Studio – Installation Design – A.lange & Söhne Jotta-Studio-Lange-&-Sohne-31-cornwall Jotta Studio – Installation Design – A.lange & Söhne Jotta Studio – Installation Design – A.lange & Söhne Jotta Studio – Installation Design – A.lange & Söhne Inspired by the 31 day mechanism within the Lange 31 watch, we used a 16mm spring-wound 1940’s camera - the Bolex – to expose the film. Traditionally, black and white films thrive on contrast – the extremities between black and white. In this film, our aim was the opposite; to celebrate the flat, monochromatic range of the colour grey, its subtleties and textural qualities.
Textures were teased out of the landscape as we travelled around the dramatic Cornish landscape. Seascapes, moorlands, geological formations and vestiges of old industry were filmed. 

The film was then re-introduced into physical space, projected inside a floating installation. Click here to see the full project

London Fashion Week – Emilio De La Morena

Jotta Studio – Installation Design – London Fashion Week Jotta Studio – Installation Design – London Fashion Week Jotta recently designed the presentation for Emilio de la Morena’s A/W 17 collection at London Fashion Week. Taking design cues from the heart of the collection, Jotta created a series of coated steel shapes in autumnal hues, layered to create an abstracted horizon down the runway. Patterned gauzes stretched across the face of each shape provided a ‘curtain’ from which models emerged.
