Elegant Clutter’s Creative Director, Harry Pass, led the design and build of their award winning stand, and we managed to get a few words from him on the design of the beautiful stand.

Harry Commented;

“We wanted to get across 2 key messages at this year’s event; that Elegant Clutter can infuse art into any interior element and that we can help bring ideas to life. 

We decided to create a hotel lobby from just one starting point – an abstract painting. We would capture all the detail of the painting at very high resolution and then use it to design every element of the lobby concept.

Our team of designers and artists all created a number of paintings (we had about 30 paintings!) and we narrowed it down to the final piece which was chosen for it’s layers of texture, complex composition and confident use of colour. We wanted it to stand out and make it a really fun space”.

A wide range of Elegant Clutter’s capabilities was called upon, including original art, product design, digital artwork, picture framing, joinery and fine art printing. Key collaborations with other BCFA members include the Bugatti 3 seater sofa by Knighstbridge and the bespoke curtains and upholstered stools manufactured together with Concept Contract.
