Our boldest interior design decisions include decorating a £5m loft with chairs made by ex-convicts and re-using discarded glass bottles to build the bar of a London private member's club.
We aim to unite the artistic, the socially conscious, the disadvantaged and the affluent through design.
What if buildings could wear temporary facades like party dresses? Or a curtain-like structure as in stage design? These could allow pre-existing architecture to be redesigned in a more sustainable fashion, using less material resources. This optimisation, favouring a temporary upgrade over a permanent renovation, is an experimental form of upcycling, a priority for both Studio Aisslinger and 19 greek street.
We collaborated with Aisslinger in 2012 for Architecture Re-imagined, a project in which we gave our townhouse a bold new look, dressing it in a colourful outfit of textiles from Danish company Kvadrat for the duration of London Design Festival.
The installation tied in with the launch of Nina Tolstrup’s Re-imagined furniture collection, for which the same fabrics were used.
