Lawson Robb recently featured in Bridge for Design as the publication explores how to bring a home to life by richness of texture, colour and objets d’art.
“Behind exceptional architecture lies one of Mayfair’s finest three bedroom residences. This is a home brought to life through a richness of texture, subtle colour and intriguing objets d’art. The artwork plays a particularly important role. Rather than purely decorative or positioned to create focal points, the artwork, sourced by House of Fine Art, gives life to the apartment.
The movement of the artwork is created through an inherent transparency. For example, the wall piece by Zhuang Hong Yi manipulates flowers made of rice paper with layers of acrylic and watercolour paint to create a canvas of large-scale yet very delicate petals.
Aggelika Korovessi’s cast bronze statue of swirling birds takes ancient Greece as her foundation. Light interplays with the metal’s reflective quality while shining through the individual birds. Meanwhile her cast bronze and stainless steel tight-rope walker adds vertiginous excitement, a standing sculpture animating the room and adding an unexpected dynamism.
Meanwhile, Marie Soliman’s collection of paintings explores the cultural space between her Egyptian birthplace and the contemporary vibrancy of the London as she calls home. The exoticism and rich textures of Egypt are called upon a contract with the modern pace of London.
Hanging neatly next to the birds of flight, together they tell a story of travel and adventure.”
