Design by Numbers

By John Kachoyan
Simon Alderson and Tony Cunninham of London–based high designer purveyors twentytwentyone talk kitsch versus collectible and the integrity of good design.

In 1993, Tony Cunningham and Simon Alderson founded twentytwentyone, a design store that sources, produces, and sells modern furniture, lighting, and products from a converted stable building in London’s trendy Islington neighborhood. Through their uniquely curated exhibitions they continue to make people aware of great design—–modern, vintage, and contemporary.
