Amitabha at the London Design Festival
To celebrate the London Design Festival at Chelsea Design Quarter, an exquisite artwork by Yorgos Glass is on display at luxury surface specialist De Ferranti. Visit this King’s Road shop and lots of other premium interior design showrooms for a special late night opening on Monday September 15 from 6-8pm.
This beautiful Red Buddha is the ideal symbol of welcome for the late night opening of the Chelsea Design Quarter. Created by Yorgos Glass, Buddha Amitabha or the red Buddha is very welcoming and hospitable. Often seated in lotus position, the red Buddha is in a state of balance and is always associated with the attributes of the lotus: gentleness, openness and other receptive qualities.
On Monday 15 September, the premium interior showrooms of the Chelsea Design Quarter are opening their doors for a special late night opening as part of the London Design Festival.
‘I’m very honoured to be displaying my painting in glass at De Ferranti’s showroom,’ says Yorgos. ‘Their emporium has a wide variety of luxury surfaces that are rare and unusual, so my shattered glass panel sits very well amongst their treasure trove of tiles.’
The art of Yorgos Papadopoulos does not fit description easily. ‘Glass is my canvas, hammers are my brushes,’ says Yorgos, whose breathtakingly beautiful artworks are actually smashed sheets of glass that are treated with sandblasting, glass pigments, gold leaf, enamels, silicone gels and even – by accident – droplets of his own blood.
Visit De Ferranti, 583 King’s Road, Chelsea SW6, on Monday 15 September from 6-8pm.
