Excitement is brimming at Porta Romana, as we prepare to unveil Stillness, our new collection for Focus 2017.
Expect to discover, architectural silhouettes sitting alongside organic forms, hushed tones, muted palettes, and gold threads dancing among textures of stone, ceramic and glass in serene quietness.
At the core of collection, lie three compelling themes, Brutalist Architecture, an elegant blend of white and gold, and the influence of Dutch Masters, sometimes prominent and sometimes subtle, we welcome you to our showroom in Design Centre Chelsea Harbour to explore Stillness.
As you may have detected from our Instagram feed, within the collection of some thirty exquisite pieces, are a capsule collection of five lamps designed by Martin Brudnizki and one magical chandelier designed by Gareth Devonald Smith.
Sharing the same ambition to create things of enduring beauty. We invited Martin Brudnizki and Nicholas Jeanes of And Objects to collaborate with us for the first time. Characterful ceramics, with beautiful crackle glazes, in shapely organic forms sit beside glistening polished brass lamps inspired by antique vessels and vases. To give the collaboration an extra fizz we asked the creative duo to design our windows and re-imagine a space in our showroom for Focus.
We also welcome back Gareth Devonald Smith, a longstanding friend of Porta Romana, who has created the mesmerising and awe inspiring Rythmn Chandelier. Like musical notes dancing on a stave, Rhythm is a playful collective of abstract shapes interspersed with jauntily angled mismatched shades. Architectural and dramatic, Rhythm is a dynamic form with a fun sense of musicality.
