Dresdner Kleinwort Contemporary Art Collection

Danny Rolph, DPRW

Building on a substantial collection of UK and international modern art, the Contemporary Art Society were appointed to update Dresdner Kleinwort’s collection with a brief to create character for individual meeting rooms.

The project offered a chance to begin a conversation between the old and the new, bringing in the work of emerging and established artists that reflects on ideas of modernism and abstraction.

For the main reception area the Contemporary Art Society commissioned a site-specific kinetic artwork from French artist Vincent Leroy that subtly shifts in colour and movement to create a gently animated focus for the waiting area.
