About Campbell Rey

Campbell-Rey is an award-winning design partnership and creative consultancy founded by Duncan Campbell and Charlotte Rey. Working fluently between residential and commercial interior design, creative direction, furniture and product design, their colourful work is a celebration of craftsmanship and conviviality, combined with a spirit of irreverence and a love of materials.

Born in Edinburgh, Duncan read Law at King’s College London and Charlotte, originally from southern Sweden, studied Fashion History and Theory at Central Saint Martins. They began their career together at Acne Studios’ cult publication Acne Paper where they met in 2007, eventually becoming co-editors.

They launched Campbell-Rey in 2014 as a creative consultancy specialising in storytelling for legacy and lifestyle brands, among them Bentley, Bulgari, Baccarat, Penfolds and Veuve Clicquot. Through this work, they became increasingly drawn to the physical space, product design, architecture, and interiors, and began working on design commissions for commercial clients including the London Edition, 1stdibs, Clos19, Kartell, Christie’s, Kitri, Away, Agnona and the Elton John AIDS Foundation in addition to a number of private clients.

In 2019, Campbell-Rey won Newcomer to Watch at the Homes & Gardens Design Awards as well as being included in Country & Townhouse magazine’s Top 50 Interior Designers, Architectural Digest Germany’s Top 200 Influencers and The Gentleman’s Journal’s London’s 50 Most Influential Tastemakers.

Their playful, elegant aesthetic has garnered acclaim from some of the world’s leading publications including Architectural Digest (US, Germany & France), The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, FT Weekend, The World of Interiors, American, British and Turkish Vogue, Vogue Living, House & Garden, Elle Decoration (UK, Sweden & France), Corriere Della Serra and Telegraph Luxury.

MATE Museo Mario Testino

Concept and curation for an exhibition of George Hurrell's photographs in Lima, Peru

MATE is the museum and arts foundation established by photographer Mario Testino to house a permanent collection of his work, alongside a rotating schedule of exhibitions from international and Peruvian artists. In collaboration with Testino, Campbell-Rey conceived and curated Legends in Light, an exhibition showcasing 20 works by legendary Hollywood photographer George Hurrell.

George Hurrell is considered a master of studio portraiture and his photographs have come to define the glamour and elegance of the Golden Age of Hollywood. With a prolific career that began in the late 1920s, Hurrell immortalised the most iconic stars of the era including Clark Gable, Joan Crawford, Greta Garbo and Katharine Hepburn, securing their legacy as gods and goddesses of the silver screen. The exhibition is the first in the Los Maestros de la Fotografia series, celebrating the greatest photographers of the 20th century at MATE.
