During Decorex we walked around the city, and the following design pieces, exhibitons or/and installations were some of the best that London gave to the design world this year.
Lee Broom‘s Flower Shop
Lee Broom created The Flower Shop to showcase his collection of Podium vases, which comprise marble bases and glass vessels in a variety of shapes.
Described by Broom as “an immersive journey through a sea of flowers,” the installation is located at his showroom on Rivington Street for the duration of this year’s London Design Festival.
British designer Tom Dixon has partnered with Selfridges to open a multi-sensory temporary department store at the Old Selfridges Hotel in London.
The Mise-en-abyme installation was created by London designers Matteo Fogale and Laetitia de Allegri, who were partnered with UK company Johnson Tiles for the project.
Holes cut out from vertical sheets of coloured acrylic form a tunnel designed to distort perspective across a bridge in the V&A museum.
Mischer’Traxler interactive Curiosity Cloud installation
Vienna studio Mischer’Traxler has filled an ornately decorated room at the V&A museum with glass bulbs containing hand-made insects, which flutter around inside in response to the movement of visitors.
Bilge Nur Saltik‘s glass OP-vases
Turkish designer Bilge Nur Saltik has created a line of hand-cut patterned glass vessels that create a kaleidoscope effect when filled with flowers.
