June 2017 – September 2017, London
Saffron Interior Arts represents an eclectic group of interior artists who create contemporary bespoke pieces of furniture and accessories, including textiles, glass and lighting, for both residential and commercial projects. Saffron’s artists are hand selected by Artistic Director Caroline Shamash to provide a wide range of options and the highest of quality for their clients. Clients are given the rare opportunity to be part of a unique creative process, collaborating with world-class interior artists to create exclusive bespoke works of art.
Over the next few months, the gallery will be hosting an exhibition by Alexander Lamont. Inspired by the luminous decorative arts of Europe and Japan during the early twentieth century, Alexander Lamont’s collections of furniture, lighting and accessories are an expression of his dedication to meticulous workmanship, rare materials and an aesthetic taste refined by a life lived between East and West. Long forgotten, hard-won and highly prized skills are evident on every piece, whether surfaced by translucent raw shagreen, slivers of straw marquetry, rich black natural lacquer or hand patinated bronze. By reviving the precious traditions of the past in his own workshops and applying the luxuries of time and skill to elegant and contemporary designs, Lamont creates elements of vitality that dwell in the margin between art and furniture.
