Jewelry and ceramics specialist Completedworks has introduced its distinctive model of offbeat cool to a brand new showroom and studio in London’s Marylebone. London-based inside design studio Hollie Bowden labored carefully with Completedworks’ inventive director Anna Jewsbury on the design, which is impressed by the textural types of the model’s jewelry itself.

‘The general design of the area targeted on a seek for magnificence and ease on this explicit setting,’ Bowden tells us. ‘The area was fairly a extreme, industrial shell initially. Anna was a dream associate for this venture and we simply gelled from the outset – I believe we intuitively understood that what the model wanted was a fastidiously calibrated setting reasonably than a very flashy, “interior-designy” strategy. We targeted on two supplies, lime wash and aluminium, that ran by the area. The wrap-around lime wash created a superbly impartial body, and with aluminium we explored the other ways the fabric might be manipulated to create sculptural types and buildings – folding it, hammering and welding.’

‘The uninteresting lustre of aluminium labored brilliantly for the show items, as the graceful, cool steel balanced the various palette of Completedworks’ handmade items so effectively: reflective metallics, stones, matt resin, pearls, and earthy ceramic slip,’ Bowden provides. ‘I used to be in search of the distinction this historically industrial materials supplied to the fantastic and delicate jewelry items. The minimal, linear show language which runs all through the showroom counteracts the sculptural, undulating jewelry and homewares Completedworks is so well-known for. I significantly love how the sharp traces of the shelving models distinction with the natural and flowing types of the folded, squeezed ceramics.’

In the end, performance takes priority within the area, which is a component workshop, half showroom. ‘We determined that the entire “working” aspect of the area needs to be celebrated as a functioning atelier. Visitors enter through the crew’s working space, after which descend the metal stairs into the showroom and jewelry workshop, the place they’ll see the customized communal jewelry workshop bench we designed with my associate Byron Pritchard. It’s such an thrilling alternative to expertise being immersed within the course of, reasonably than simply being a passive shopper. The first problem was to seamlessly incorporate performance into the items we designed. I believe the end result may be very glossy and sculptural however each bit needed to be useful and versatile, like for instance the packing desk, which seems as a stable quantity of aluminium however was designed to discreetly home packing materials, and a hidden bubble wrap/tissue paper dispenser.’ (opens in new tab)
