Berberian Sound Studio – Opening Credits

Pierre Cardin Bubble House – Cannes

Continuing this weeks Cannes theme. Many, many moons ago (2002), we designed the UK theatrical posters for the release of Oshii Mamoru’s Avalon. To this day one of our fondest Cannes memories was attending the launch party for the film which was held in the incredible Pierre Cardin ‘Bubble’ House. Just wish I hadn’t drunk so much on the night and could remember it more clearly! More pix and background info on the house here.
