Celebrating 30 years
2018 promises to be an auspicious year for Porta Romana
as we celebrate our 30th Birthday.
To mark our three decade history, we have embarked on cultural collaborations with two quintessentially British Institutions. The first is a donation to the Royal Academy, who will celebrate their 250th Anniversary next year, we feel honoured a Porta Romana chandelier will be enjoyed by visitors for years to come. The second is a partnership with Grange Park Opera, a new woodland opera house, in the grounds of West Horsley Place, close by to our Head Quarters in Surrey. Our Beatrice Wall Lights fill the auditorium, providing a beautiful glow to this magical and enchanting space.
Staying true to our ambition, to constantly evolve we recognise converting to and accelerating the use of LED light bulbs in our 30th year will have the greatest positive impact on the environment.
With the small family run charity SOS Africa, we have pledged to raise £30,000 to build an Education Centre in South Africa. If you would like to donate, or follow our journey as we embark on a year of fundraising, please click here to visit our fundraising page.
In 2018 we will also expand our global presence, showing for the first time at Salone del Mobile Milano, where we will unveil our SS/18 Collection.
To celebrate this esteemed anniversary we commissioned, Artist Chris Gilvan-Cartwright aka The Baron Gilvan to create our 30th anniversary branding. Look out for his raw, playful and fresh images.
We look forward to revealing more details as each of these initiatives develop, and most importantly we would like to thank you for your continuous loyalty, we are excited for you to join us in the next chapter.
