Architect and designer India Mahdavi has just given a new lease of life to La Gallery, one of the five spaces at the Sketch, a must-see for any London food lover. We take a look at five of her most iconic creations.
– The Sketch
Highly Instagramable, this table in the British capital is an icon of the 2010s. Pink, all in curves via those of the Charlotte armchair specially designed for this address, the decoration used to highlight the works of David Shrigley. This year, the Briton is leaving his place to Anglo-Nigerian designer Yinka Shonibare, who has taken up residence in a setting with warm yellow tones.
– The Don Giovanni lamp
The Don Giovanni is a member of the “family of seducers” and is easily recognizable with its brioche shade made of blown Bohemian glass. This sibling of lights, which also includes the Casanova, suggests the importance of the play of light in seduction. A game evoked through their suave forms.
– The Cap Martin armchair
It was originally designed for the Monte Carlo Beach Hotel, with the goal of resurrecting the Riviera atmosphere of the 1950s. Made of rattan, the armchair and the sofa of this collection are contemporary evocations of the winter garden.
– The Bishop
This too was first designed specifically for a place, the bar of the New York club APT. Since then, the Bishop stool has been a real success story, becoming part of the permanent collection of the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris.
– The Clover chandelier
Made of copper and Murano blown glass, this incredible light fixture, with poetic and naive influences, is a tribute from the designer to the pop culture heroes of her childhood.
