Visionary designer–makers Nicola and Christopher Cox are causing a sculptural stir around the Pimlico Road circles where they have opened their first London showroom on Ebury Street. Serpent heads, surreal forests and oak leaves are just a few signature features. Part sculpture, part furniture, these are interior art pieces with functional roles to play.
‘We want our pieces to be beautiful and intriguing. The work is becoming increasingly experimental drawing together all the influences that inspire and motivate us, of which the possibilities are endless.’
Their inspiration often comes from the natural world and the history of art -from antiquity to modernism. But what unites each piece is a fascination with materials and a passion for process. Each creation infused with inventiveness and rooted with a deep knowledge of traditional techniques.
How fabulous that we can now see and touch these pieces first hand in one of London’s most creative art, antiques and interior hubs.
‘We are designer-makers whose work is craft-orientated, sculpture based and infused with historical references. Nicola and I are sculptors and from the third generation of an antique dealing family.
We have always been in love with The Pimlico Road. For nearly 40 years it has been home to the most interesting art and antique dealers alongside exceptional Interior decorators. The Pimlico road is a great showcase the for the finest British design and craftsmanship.’
The essence of the space is to showcase contemporary sculptural furniture and lighting designed and made in London by Nicola and Christopher Cox and their specialist team of artisans. New pieces include lost wax cast bronze furniture and lighting, sculpted by the duo and cast by their team.
Cox London is part of London Craft Week with a special event that explores how to commission handmade furniture and lighting as well as undertaking private commissions. Telegraph Luxury design columnist and Wallpaper* editor at large Henrietta Thompson will be in conversation with Cox London on Wednesday 3 May, 5-6pm.
