BROMPTON & CHELSEA CONTINUED. . .
‘ BREATHLESS: THE ESSENCE OF GLASS’ ( 17– 24 SEPTEMBER) Ever wanted to try your hand at glass blowing? Now you can, as a mobile glass furnace is transported from Prague to North Terrace, Kensington, courtesy of Czech glassmakers Dechem Studio, creative collective OKOLO and Czech Centre London. Michael Anastassiades and Tomas Alonso will be crafting unique pieces and there will also be a glass museum ( below; czechcentre.org.uk).
CASSINA ( 17– 25 SEPTEMBER) Alongside a display of its latest collections, the Italian manufacturer will present a playful installation at its Brompton Road showroom focusing on Patricia Urquiola’s new ‘Gender’ chair ( below), which changes identity based on its colourway and materials (cassina.com/ london).
CHRISTOPHER FARR, MOROSO AND STUDIO TORD BOONTJE ( 17– 30 SEPTEMBER) Three names that you might not immediately associate with one another come together to create an installation at Farr’s new, bigger space in Chelsea Wharf. Boontje has created a new collection of textiles, wallpapers, rugs and furniture on the theme of the English garden in collaboration with Farr and Italian brand Moroso. We understand that flowers, bees and horses abound: we can’t wait to see it! (christopherfarr.com).
