Meet the Designers Behind Peter Pilotto’s Jaw-Dropping Townhouse Takeover
We’ve almost never met an immersive design environment we didn’t like, but Peter Pilotto‘s takeover of a Victorian townhouse in Brompton during last week’s London Design Festival was something else entirely. Located at 3 Cromwell Place and on view until October 15, the immensely inspiring interior is painted in shades of peach, mint green, and Monica-from-Friends purple and outfitted with a riot of collaborative wares from friends of the designer: pastel, blown-glass lamps and benches by Bethan Laura Wood; stools by Martino Gamper, topped with furry poufs or upholstered buttons; glassware by Jochen Holz; ceramics by Francis Upritchard; blankets by Max Lamb; and rugs selected by Pilotto and his partner Christopher DeVos from Marrakech. (We’re not quite sure who did the gradient clothes racks if anyone knows!) The pop-up spreads over three floors, with the label’s AW2017 collection on view upstairs and a sneak peek of the SS2018 collection downstairs. Aesthetically, the pop-up is an extension of the set design Pilotto created for London Fashion Week show (which we featured earlier this year) — here’s hoping the current show earns Pilotto a whole host of new designer fans and friends to collaborate with next season.
