Chelsea Design Quarter Members at Decorex 2019
Decorex 2019 is just around the corner and we can’t wait to see how it settles into its new home in Olympia. As always Chelsea Design Quarter will have a strong presence with a number of members exhibiting.
Matthew Wailes (M243) are launching a very exciting new collection in conjunction with The Carpet Maker, Thailand. The LuxuryEco collection is made from upcycled plastic bottles from the ocean. The innovative new process uses 59% less energy than the virgin production process, is chemical free and reduces C02 emissions by 32%. The end result is a luxurious yarn that can be used in the production of rugs and carpets. You can read more about the collection here. Chelsea Design Quarter was privy to an exclusive first look and we are very excited about this new product hitting the market!
Ammique (P302) will be showcasing their Autumn 2019 collection. Their stand will give visitors the opportunity to experience their second-generation beds and try their unique sleep technology. Their innovative design includes thousands of precision-engineered components that contour to the natural curves of the body making sleep a completely new experience. Head to their stand to learn more and experience it for yourself.
Waterworks (C164) is launching the Foro collection, designed in collaboration with Thomas O’Brien. Waterworks has previously worked with O’Brien on their Aero collection which launched 20 years ago and they are excited to showcase the new Foro collection which takes its inspiration from the mix of beauty, balance and classical design details. The collection takes its name from the Roman Forum and Foro Italico. The comprehensive 42 piece collection includes all fixtures and fittings with pieces such as taps and lighting taking centre stage.

Some of the designs include dichroic glass, which shimmers and changes colour in the light.
