7 Statements from David Collins Studio
Posted on 03 June 2015
After an inspirational walk through Fortnum and Mason during London Craft Week, it was only befitting to dedicate a blog post to David Collins Studio. Having afternoon Tea at the elegantly designed Diamond Jubilee Tea Salon, I couldn't help but remember the film Breakfast at Tiffany's. Teal sumptuously dressed with gold crockery, the incredible attention to detail to follow traditional British Design. I have carefully selected 7 Statement designs to help inspire you and fall in love with David Collins just as much as I have.
Vogue Lounge, Mahanakhon Cube, Bangkok, Thailand
Launched in November 2014, Vogue Lounge is a luxury lifestyle centre its based in the heart of the capital.
The decadently designed interior is inspired by black and white images from the Vogue archives, a collaboration that took place with Conde Nast publications. The space evokes luxury and glamour reflecting the essence of the brand.
Alexander McQueen, Aoyama Tokyo Japan
Opened in June 2014, as the flagship store in Tokyo for both menswear and womenswear, the beauty is not only in the clothes but in the architecture as well. The concept of store is minimal and contemporary, the staircase is carved out of one single block of Marble. Each material is carefully chosen and matched, to create this stunning interior retail site.
Harrods Shoe Heaven, Knightsbridge London
The name says it all, think Sex and the City, think Carrie Bradshaw's shoe closet, but accessible in Harrods. The interior follows the period detail from the Art Deco era, highlights of bronze mint and mirrors pick up each detail, and enhance the extravagance of the shoes.
Bob Bob Ricard, Soho London
BBR is a brassiere inspired by the 20th century romance of travel and the Eclair de Luxe train. David Collins uses its signature materials to create the classical and opulent inspired interior. Marble, terrazzo and ikat wallpapers create the stunning atmosphere of BBR.
Callas, Andrassy Ut, Budapest, Hungary
Opened in 2006, Callas is a brassiere adjacent to the Hungarian Opera House, one might say it had no option but to be amazing. The space is inspired by the original architecture uncovered during the renovation. To enhance the details, David Collins Studio worked with local artisans and decorative artist to install back to its original glory.
The Diamond Jubilee Tea Salon, Fortnum & Mason, London
To close the show I had to revisit The Diamond Jubilee Tea Salon, opened in 2014 the space is inspired by the english garden and porcelain. Situated in the heart of luxury department store Fortnum and Mason, it reflects the consistency and elegance that the David Collins Studio continues to deliver.
