The Andaz Liverpool Street Hotel will launch multiple installations as part of London Design Festival from September 17 to 26.
They include ‘Iambic Rhythm’ by Rowan Mersh; ‘Bulb’ by Minimalux; ‘Secret Sensory Suppers’ by Franklin Till and ‘Geometric’ by Cole & Son.
‘‘This is the second year Andaz has participated in The London Design Festival and we’re particularly excited to be partnering with so many British designers and brands,” said Arnaud de Saint-Exupéry, general manager, Andaz Liverpool Street.
“London is the world’s centre of creativity; we believe in supporting our local designers and providing our guests with experiences that reflect the authentic lifestyle of our city. Acting as a platform for design and creativity for The London Design Festival allows us to achieve this.’’
Iambic Rhythm represents the English language and the human body, a line of poetry that has the same (iambic pentameter) rhythm as a heart beating. When alive, the installation will generate a range of wave-like kinetic movements that will undulate through the space as a symbolic manifestation of the pulse of London. London based design brand Minimalux will present ‘Bulb’, its first light, this new table lamp pays homage to the shape and materiality of the familiar, but soon to be obsolete, incandescent light bulb.
Secret Sensory Suppers will explore fleeting experiences through food, fragrance, music and light. Working with creative partners Bompas & Parr, Silent Studios and Stirring with Knives for three evenings throughout The London Design Festival Till will curate an exciting series of gastronomic sensory feasts.
Cole & Son will launch its autumn 2011 collection ‘Geometric’ with an installation of freestanding and wall mounted sculptures. The latest offering from the British wallpaper manufacturer is a selection of contemporary designs influenced by intricate patterns and vivid graphics.
