Now in its fifth year, Masterpiece London returns as the highlight of London’s summer art season – taking place once again on the South Grounds of the Royal Hospital Chelsea from 26 June – 2 July (with a Preview on 25 June).
Masterpiece lines up over 3000 years’ worth of art history from antiquity to contemporary. It brings together international patrons, collectors, curators and exhibitors in a display of art, antiques, jewellery and design. No wonder Ochre is proud to be part of this Fair.
The Ochre Salon is dedicated to a discerning edit of lighting and furniture. Pieces are handcrafted using luxurious complementary materials and stamped with Ochre’s hallmark – discreet glamour.
These designs are modern collectables - something to fall in love with and never tire of. Exhibits have to be original in conception and faultless in execution or in other words of the highest order. And of-course Ochre rose to the occasion.
Each design begins with understanding the possibilities of a material and the designers spend time working alongside specialist craftsmen, in their workshops, exploring traditional techniques such as glass blowing, bronze casting and hand weaving. This is done in order to create highly crafted and highly valued pieces and in doing so bring traditional techniques into the present to serve a contemporary sensibility.
