Intelligence PAD London

Pad London 2015 continues to be a truly eclectic treasure trove of design and the decorative arts. Where else but in that wonderful shadowy tent on Berkeley Square, with the huge trees growing through the ceiling, will you find ancient Celtic sculptures sat alongside dramatic tribal masks, stunning jewellery and 20th century vintage furniture?

Highlights for us were Rose Uniacke’s stand - simple yet beautifully styled, showing off Scandinavian furniture from Axel Einar Hjorth and copper lighting by Poul Henningson. Not surprising that it won Best Stand. We also loved Gordon Watson’s stand with its display of rare vintage furniture and decorative homewares from the 1930s and 50s while New York based gallery Friedman Benda presented furniture by post-modernist master Ettore Sottsass that had never been seen before. Carpenters Workshop Gallery showed off Wendell Castle’s new bronze seating sculptures while opposite their stand, David Gill Gallery displayed some beautiful work including some freestanding lights by Paris-based designer Mattia Bonetti.

It was interesting to read Dezeen’s opinion this week that “London is fast turning into the global centre for the collectible design market, with sales growing, new galleries opening and auction records tumbling.” Certainly PAD was crowded on all four days it was open and there was a palpable energy and excitement in the air there.
