Following on from MH50 – 50 Years of Design, a short film by Margaret Howell and Emily Richardson released last year to mark the 50th anniversary of Margaret Howell, Margaret and Emily have made another short film, Affinities – 50 Years of Design.
The film attempts to show the affinity Margaret feels for certain aspects of life in Japan. It includes personal photographs and objects that have appealed to Margaret on her many visits to Japan, from 1983 onwards.
‘Simplicity in life is the guiding principle though it may be the hardest thing to achieve.’– MARGARET HOWELL
