Design Centre Stories

Design with a Heart

In an effort to raise £30,000 to build an Education Centre in South Africa, Porta Romana has invited five leading designers and artists including Kit Kemp, Alidad, Martyn Lawrence Bullard, Turner Pocock and Adebayo Bolaji to decorate a Porta Romana lamp in their own distinctive style. The results were magical and unexpected.
