Living Standards

Design for galleries like David Zwirner, Giò Marconi and Sprüth Magers, for the Julia Stoschek collection, for museums like London‘s Tate Modern or the New Yor¬k Guggenheim, for artists like Olafur Eliasson, Wolfgang Tillmans and Rirkrit Tiravanija or for theatres like Schauspiel Frankfurt and Münchner Kammerspiele: For more than two decades, the Kreuzberg-based design agency Double Standards has been making a splash in art and culture with its striking works.

Now, the studio around founder Chris Rehberger is set to broaden its scope: with Living Standards, an online portal for objects that Rehberger describes as “an homage to public design. It’s about a novel interpretation of things we all know from everyday life“, he adds. “We reinterpret objects and thus allow you to experience them anew."

The platform’s debut launch is the Standard Bag 1, 2 and 3, a container bag fashioned from finest goatskin and reminiscent of those handy, chequered bags internationally known as “Chinese bags“ or “laundry bags“. “When you catch a glimpse of the Standard Bag on the street from afar, you certainly won’t expect the material’s premium quality“, explains Rehberger.
