For London Design Festival 2018, Nicholas Anthony is privileged to unveil the latest in grandeur lighting through its partnership with Occhio. As the recent winner of the Lighting Design Awards 2018 for best “Architectural Luminaire Interior”, Occhio’s prestigious ‘Mito’ design will be on display for all to see during the LDF period in the form of a breathtaking installation. The beautiful ‘Mito’ design is coupled with the Occhio Air System technology and touchless control, allowing you to effortlessly alter the lighting in any environment. Emphasising the Occhio ‘Mito’ is a simple task as the elegant design oozes class and adds that extra sense of quality and wow-factor to any interior.
During the event itself, Nicholas Anthony will play host to the large audiences by welcoming them into the showroom to talk and network; as well as supplying the finest Louis Roderer champagne and freshly made canapés. Once you step inside the showroom you will be greeted by the newest in Occhio interactive technology. From 15 and 17 – 22 September, make sure you find yourself at the Nicholas Anthony Knightsbridge showroom to witness the splendour of the Nicholas Anthony x Occhio ‘Mito’ partnership display.

In their family-owned glass factory in the north of the Czech Republic, they take interior designer’s challenging concepts and turn them into a reality.

Designed by Jonathan Hindle FCSD, KI’s new Take5 lounge seating collection is inspired by mid-century styling and designed for today’s workspaces. The collection’s single, two- and three-seater sofas with low or high backs are complemented by ottomans, coffee tables and side tables. Take5’s pillowed shapes and curved armrests are evocative of a teddy bear, instantly inviting the user to feel comfortable and relaxed. The space beneath the armrests also acts as legroom, allowing the user to pivot to the side. The flat top of the armrests double as both a secondary seating surface and a worktop for notebooks or laptops. Each sofa can be fitted with power and USB modules. Matching or contrasting upholstered high backs can be added to reduce distractions, increase a sense of privacy and for noise reduction. These elegant products help to create a more domestic atmosphere in the corporate workspace.
Coinciding with the launch of Take5, KI have teamed up with leading textiles designer, Natasha Marshall, as well as Bute Fabrics, to create exclusive print fabrics to further enhance the collection’s domestic appeal. Two new designs, ‘Vista’ and ‘Pompom’ have been produced in exclusive colourways especially for Take5. Custom colours can also be produced to match a specific project. Jonathan Hindle comments:
“Workplaces are increasingly taking cues from hospitality and domestic environments to create altogether more inviting, comfortable spaces. Untethered from our desks, we now seek spaces that support casual collaboration, or give us an opportunity to get away from the hustle and bustle of a busy office space. Take5 was created to allow workers to find an appropriate work setting for either individual or group tasks, or to simply take ‘5 minutes’ away from work and regenerate.”
A collection of sophisticated 100% solution-dyed acrylic fabrics designed by the heritage textiles company. The original British company was founded in 1861 by artist and designer William Morris, and became known for decorative patterns and wood block prints. The collaboration features these iconic patterns in new fabric qualities – Strawberry Thief, Branch, Rosehip, Bachelors Button, Marigold, Poppy, Willow Bough – while also debuting four qualities inspired by Morris’ innovative spirit – Ascot Stripe, Piccadilly Stripe, Jaunty, and Blurred Lines. It also boasts four new colourways – Spearmint, Zephyr, Blue Moon, Peppercorn – updating historic styles with a fresh and pure colour palette. The collection highlights traditional British patterns while introducing soothing tones, offering ornate yet accessible pattern play, and transforming William Morris’ centuries-old designs into exquisite liveable fabrics that can be styled indoors or out.
The pretty muted pastel shades of Sandy Bay’s new Retreat Collection are bang on trend, as is the lovely, tactile matt effect glassware, and attractive packaging featuring the Sandy Bay branding. The 4 gorgeous fragrances are true to their names, Sublime (pomelo, magnolia, jasmine, clove, patchouli and nutmeg), Radiance (rose otto, cassis, lemon, bergamot, violet, geranium and soft woods), Heavenly (watermelon, basil, cucumber floral and musk) and Decadence (citrus, geranium leaves, lemongrass, pine needles, cedar and black pepper). Each has been designed to transport you to a happy place of pure self-indulgence. These are fragrances that you will want to use every day, so the addition of new, natural hand washes and hand lotions are a perfect way to pamper yourself with these delightful scents. The natural theme of this range flows though all products, candles are hand poured using Sandy Bay’s own unique blend of Natural Wax which contains Coconut Wax, and the Reed Diffusers are made with an alcohol-free, odour-free base.
