The Message of Making


While trends may come and go, the power of making is the one message that will always endure in luxury design. Focus/16 brings that artistry right into the showrooms, with live demonstrations of some of these enviable creative skills. Fromental brought its head artist from China (pictured) to paint an exquisite wallcovering, bringing a floral motif to life with the deft flick of a brush; Savoir Beds demonstrated how a single maker assembles a No2 mattress; Porta Romana showed how the gilding on its ‘Cosmos’ collection was achieved; and Turnstyle Designs showed how its leather door handles are hand-stitched.
