There is something wonderful about viewing a creative persons output alongside the things they surrounded themselves with. Paul Rand : The Art of design auction does exactly this and its fascinating to see how the things Rand collected filtered into his own design aesthetic. From the playful humour in Shigeo Fukuda's works, the energy of line in the works of Picasso and Miro and the strict graphic shapes of furniture by Charlotte Perriand and Enzo Mari - its a unique insight into Rand's visual universe.
