PARTNER: House & Garden magazine
PROJECT: VIP Lounge at Decorex 2015
DATE: September 2015
For Decorex 2015, we transformed the House & Garden VIP Lounge into an immersive experience of British craftsmanship. Pursuing the concept of an Anthology of British Craft, we transformed the VIP Lounge into a creative platform for the skills, materials and processes that make up craft across the British Isles – offering immersive experiences that explored different aspects of craftsmanship in thought provoking ways, from texture and pattern to form and finish.
Highlights included: a new day bed design from William Waterhouse with hand-block printed fabrics from Louisa Loakes; Bowls of Britain – a curated collection of 18 bowls presenting an anthology of craft and process; Baskets of the British Isles co-curated by master basket maker Hilary Burns, and lighting from hand-weaver Catarina Riccabona and potter Akiko Hirai, which marked the soft launch of our new Lighting Design Service in collaboration with design consultant Claire Norcross.
Anyone with a passion for decorative and applied arts will be in craft heaven here.
