FAST FORWARD: MALLETT ANTIQUES, EST. 1865, BRINGS THE LONDON DESIGN FESTIVAL TO MAYFAIR
Mallett marries old and new in a series of contemporary events at Ely House during the London Design Festival this September. The great antiques dealer will offer a rich historical background to cutting-edge pieces such as the Glacier chair by Australian designer Brodie Neil and a 17 metre fantasy chandelier by lighting manufacturer Bocci; Mallett will also celebrate the opening of Jules Wright’s new exhibition space at Ely House dedicated to contemporary photography. These collaborations will be accompanied by talks headed by design critic Gareth Williams on the future of collecting contemporary design and on fantasy furniture throughout the centuries.
