Thursday 9 May 2019

In recognition of its commitment to craftsmanship, Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour participated in London Craft Week 2019, a celebration of artisan traditions across the capital. Writer Charlotte Abrahams was in conversation with Franco Ceccotti, the legendary founder of Ceccotti Collezioni, discussing why a respect for traditional artisan processes is at the heart of his creative approach. “Artisan skills are very important, each one expresses soul” said Ceccotti. “We need to maintain traditions, they are the antiques of tomorrow”. Following the talk was a Design Discovery Tour dedicated to craftsmanship.
