Established in 1985, David Collins Studio is an architectural based consultancy which has redefined luxury interior design on a global scale.
Simon Rawlings is creative director of David Collins Studio. Throughout his 16 years with the company, he has been fundamental in defining and implementing the studio’s creative vision, working in close collaboration with David Collins and the creative team.
The studio is proud to have been involved in designing unique projects for a wide range of clients both in the commercial worlds of high fashion as well as the design of some of London’s most loved and revered restaurants, hotels and bars.
David Collins Studio has won numerous awards, such as Top Ten Hottest Hotel Bars, Top Ten Best Spa Hotels, The Best Bar in the World or Best Condo Development.
One of its award-winning projects is exclusive and very elegant Connaught Bar that won the Top Ten Hottest Hotel Bars 2014 award. The bar was created in 2008 for the Maybourne Hotel Group.
Ultra-stylish décor and mouth-watering cocktails put the Connaught Bar in Mayfair into a league of its own. Inspired by English Cubist and Irish 1920s art, with textured walls shimmering in platinum silver leaf overlaid with dusty pink, pistachio and lilac, designer David Collins has produced a gem of a London bar.
The bar is panelled in a hand-painted Hibernian landscape designed in collaboration with atelier Pierre Bonneville and realised in dusty pink, pistachio green, and pale lilac all framed in platinum silver leafed oak panels, representing the Irish landscape.
The bar is the recipient of many awards including “best interior design of the year” (Elle Decoration) and best bar for sealing the deal (esquire man at the top awards).
