Past Event: Philippe Malouin Celebrates Seven Dials With A Bunting Installation On Earlham Street
Canadian designer, Philippe Malouin is bringing celebration to Seven Dials with a quintessentially British installation for the 7 Designers for Seven Dials project.
From 12th September, visitors to Earlham Street will be treated to a visual display – a giant installation of bunting made from transparent PVC designed to celebrate and highlight the Seven Dials area and its landmarks. Waving in the wind and uniting to a ceiling, the sixty bunting lines do not hide Earlham Street but reveal its houses and history, leading the way to the Seven Dials monument.
The installation reflects Malouin’s style of an experimental and pragmatic approach to design, heavily influenced by 50’s modernism and 60’s brutalism and minimalism, and using a range of materials in his portfolio – including rugs, chairs, lights and art objects.
Having reached global recognition, with his work exhibited in galleries around the world including Next Level Galerie in Paris, Gallery Fumi in London, Rossana Orlandi and Plus Design in Milan, Droog Design in New York, and recently winning the W Hotels ‘Designer of the Future Award’, this is one not to miss out on in Seven Dials this month.
