- Details: The Vanity of Small Differences, 2012 by Grayson Perry. Melamine table accessory. Limited edition of 1000 pieces, supplied with a signed and numbered certificate. Made exclusively for yoox.com. 2012 was an exceptional year for Grayson Perry, with three critically acclaimed exhibitions in London at the British Museum, Royal Academy of Arts, and Victoria Miro Gallery. "I am interested in modern consumerism and the history of popular design", declares the artist, "but for this project I focus on the emotional investment we make in the things we choose to live with, wear, eat, read or drive". Looking in particular at our homes and the objects we surround ourselves with, and responding to our tastes and what they reveal about us, Perry created The Vanity of Small Differences: six placemats made exclusively for yoox.com.

- Victoria Miro Gallery - One of the largest commercial spaces in London, Victoria Miro Gallery represents established names such as film and installation artist Doug Aitken, and younger talent including Conrad Shawcross; and also works with estates of artists, such as the painter Alice Neel. The gallery represents two winners of the Turner Prize: Chris Ofili, who won the prize in 1998, and the 2003 winner Grayson Perry, as well as three Turner Prize nominees: Ian Hamilton Finlay, Peter Doig and Isaac Julien. Victoria Miro first opened her gallery in Cork Street, Mayfair in 1985 and relocated to an 8,000-square-foot former furniture factory situated in northeast London in 2000. In October 2006 the gallery expanded further by opening Victoria Miro 14, a 9,000-square-foot exhibition space.
