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.
Campbell-Rey continue their exploration of colour and geometric form, introducing new expressions to traditional materials. Presenting Rosanna, a Murano glassware collection comprised of an octagonal tumbler, carafe and bowl in five striped colourways.
The collection is the culmination of a year’s experimentation and collaboration with Laguna B, a glass manufacturer based in Murano, exploring the possibilities of colour and geometry within the confines of the medium.
Playing on the juxtaposition between the strong geometric forms and intense colours which Campbell-Rey conceived for the glasses, and the glossy softness that results when they are crafted by the hand of the master, the glasses are particularly tactile to hold. Familiar yet surprising, the secondary angle on the side of the tumbler gives a new dimension to the octagonal shape.
As the liquid glass sets solid, each of the resulting pieces becomes unique in its geometry and colour.
