Book it now: East Meets West at Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour

Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour, London’s premier destination for luxury interior design, will be launching a new exhibition examining the influence of Eastern art and style on Western designers next month. Running from November 2-11, 2017, East Meets West is being held in association with Asian Art in London and aims to highlight the British capital as a centre of expertise for Asian art.

This carefully curated exhibition will take visitors on a journey through the history of Asian art in the West by showcasing rare antique artefacts alongside works by contemporary artists. A new aerial installation based on the theme of East meets West will be installed in Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour’s famous dome while ArtChina has been tasked with selecting a host of innovative works in mixed media, ceramics and paint by some of China’s most exciting contemporary artists.

Elsewhere Antiques Young Guns, a group of antiques professionals under 40, will be curating a space showcasing authentic Asian antiques including tea sets, Samurai armour, porcelain, paintings and scientific instruments, to emphasise the timeless appeal of Eastern art and examine the colours, design principles and materials that provide a common ground throughout these disparate items.

Other works on display will include those by Japanese artists represented by Kamal Bakshi while a schedule of talks, demonstrations, workshops and tours will allow visitors to get up close to master craftsman and fully immerse themselves in the cultures showcased.

"Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour is an international hub, known for its impeccable design credentials, luxury brands and world-class talent,” said Claire German, managing director of Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour. “As a centre of international design expression, we’re delighted to present such a multi-dimensional exhibition focusing on the culture and creativity of the Far East. We’re curating it in a truly immersive and innovative way.”
