EXCLUSIVE: EXCELSIOR DOORS BY KARAN SINGH

GRAND ENTRANCE

Tapping into the Salone del Mobile buzz, Excelsior Milano has teamed up with Karan Singh, an Australian-born, Tokyo-based illustrator and artist who plastered the main doors with his signature artsy touch.

While he studied interaction design, Singh is a self-taught artist who takes his cue from graphic design and op-art minimalism. His bold and vibrant work focuses on depth and dimension obtained through color, pattern and repetition.

For Excelsior that means a series of eye-popping and graphic drawings with the fashion angle appearing in the form of playful and stylized lipsticks, bags and sunglasses, plastered on the Excelsior doors to playful and energizing impact.

A die-hard globetrotter, Singh has been based in different cities, including New York,
Malmö, Sydney, Melbourne and now Tokyo. Select clients he has worked with include Instagram, IBM, Converse, Air Bnb and the band OK Go.
