27 July, 2018 | Art and design mingle in this week’s briefing. A Pagani becomes interior decor, Henry VIII’s former home hosts Ferrari, Gucci pays homage to Paris, and Design Q responds to aviation.
A Pagani race car room divider
According to Robb Report, an exclusive 800-pound, $1.5 million black Pagani Zonda R race car has been installed as a room divider inside a devoted car lover’s oceanfront condo, in Miami. The strategic installation was executed by Finish My Condo and Artefacto, both based at Florida’s southeastern tip. This supercar turned home decor concept reaffirms that some cars are indeed, works of art.
Gucci’s ode to Paris
Italian fashion house, Gucci, is set to debut its Spring/Summer 2019 collection at Théâtre Le Palace, on 24 September. First constructed in the 17th century as a music and dance hall, Le Palace rebranded as a discotheque in the ’70s.
In a statement released earlier this week on Instagram, Gucci said that the brand resonates with the vision of the theatre as it is a venue that gave life to a subculture that has inspired young generations to this day.
Gucci’s final show of a three-part homage to France will be the only catwalk to take place at Le Palace.
A rare Ferrari ‘Uovo’ sighting
The bespoke-designed Ferrari 166MM/212 Export ‘Uovo’ is set to headline at the Concours of Elegance in England.
The Ferrari has rarely been seen in public since being sold by RM Sotheby’s in 2017. And, the Concours of Elegance, hosted at the former abode of Henry VIII, Hampton Court Palace, marks an incredible opportunity to see one of the world’s most unique Ferraris.
Design Q rethinks the skies
With a 19 passenger cabin design, the Airlander 10 is a unique contribution to the aviation world. Over the last year, Hybrid Air Vehicles and Design Q have partnered up for the unusually spacious single-aisle aircraft.
CEO of HAV, Stephen McGlennan, says: “The Airlander opens up opportunities for luxury expeditions to places existing transport can’t get to and offers the ultimate in transformative, experiential travel.”
