Soft Furnishings: The Erotic House of Peter Saville – Mariacarla Boscono, Photo: Nick Knight

SHOWstudio bradcasted live to expose every intimate detail of Soft Furnishings, a fashion shoot with a difference sprung from the fertile imagination of graphic design legend Peter Saville and captured by Nick Knight for the July 2009 issue of Wallpaper* magazine. Inspired by the distinctly modish fetishisation of contemporary furniture design – and applying this to the sexualisation of an entire environment – Peter Saville has worked with set designer Gideon Ponte to construct an ‘Erotic House’ of Pop perversity, layering abstract and contrasting colours and textures inspired by Richard Hamilton’s collages and Allen Jones’ canvases. To people this post-modern dreamhome, Nick Knight and Peter Saville turned to stylist Francesca Burns, Italian model Mariacarla Boscono and Autumn/Winter 2009 fashion from the likes of Chanel, Prada, Yves Saint Laurent and Lanvin, accessorised by the less standard accoutrements of the sexual playroom.

Alongside all this will sit SHOWstudio’s constant Twitter feed and frequent live updates delivered direct from each and every imaginary room of Saville’s eroticised abode.

The entire process of creating and documenting Saville’s ‘Erotic House’ can be seen real-time on SHOWstudio.com, with our broadcast streaming live from 13:00 GMT (times subject to change). Shoot highlights will be constantly available, just in case you miss anything, including interviews with mastermind Peter Saville, image-maker Nick Knight and key players Fran Burns, Gideon Ponte and Mariacarla. Alongside all this will sit SHOWstudio’s constant Twitter feed and frequent live updates delivered direct from each and every imaginary room of Saville’s eroticised abode.
