Danad Design was set up in 1959 by a collective formed of 6 artists who lived or hung out at Marden Hill at the time. Barry Daniels, Peter Blake, Bernard Cohen, Tom Adams, Edward Wright, Robyn Deny and architects Colin Huntley and Peter Adams. Their use of everyday objects / furniture to display their art and design is considered by many art historians to be a defining moment in Pop Art. This furniture was never massed produced and was only sold through London outlets Liberty’s, Heals and Harrods. Danad Design burned brightly for a short time helping launch the careers of some of Britain s most respected artists but being artists they couldn’t run a business and more to the point, didn’t want to.
