One of the most eagerly anticipated pop-up shops to come to London is set to open its doors just in time for Christmas. From 5-8 December, four of Italy`s most creative talents have teamed together to open a shop on London`s Kinnerton Street in the heart of Belgravia.
The Italian high end designers in London pop up shop will feature mouth-blown glass from YALI Murano Glass Design, the finest hand-stitched linens from Chiarastella Cattana, unique paintings by Paola Piglia and hand-thrown ceramics by Tommaso Corvi-Mora.
Here`s a little detail on each designer –
Yali Murano Glass Design – Combining clean modern designs with traditional Venetian techniques that date back to the 13th century, Marie-Rose Kahane`s glass designs are created using master glassblowers who have honed their time-honoured craft over the decades. (Prices start from £45)
Chiarastella Cattana – Chiarastella Cattana`s textiles are the result of her research into traditional Italian weaving techniques. The results are colourful tablecloths, curtains, towels, bed linens and towels that incorporate jacquard techniques.
