Shopped out


An exhibition of photographs of designers opens at the National Portrait Gallery later this month, and includes an image of Jan Kaplicky and Amanda Levete of Future Systems that has been used on the invitation for the opening. Given that they are good fun, one can only note that the photograph makes them both look thoroughly fed-up. Perhaps it was taken after they were told that their Selfridges building in Birmingham hadn't made the Stirling Prize shortlist. Popularity with the public apparently has its limits.
