E2 Jet launch in Singapore


Paul was in Singapore last week with Embraer to launch the widely acclaimed E2 jet to the South East Asian market. We have been working closely with the Brazilian manufacturer’s in-house engineering team to design the new aircraft interiors.

The full scale mock up of our design, which was shown at the Farnborough Air Show last July, briefly dropped into Singapore to showcase the new interiors to one of the fastest growing markets in the world.

Dream House


Paul has built his take on a room for a dolls’ house as part of the V&A Museum of Childhood’s exhibition “Small Stories: At Home in a Dolls’ House”. The exhibition explores the stories behind some of the UK’s best loved dolls’ houses and features 20 unique rooms by contemporary British design luminaries.

A version of his room — ‘The Longest Table in the World’ — is currently exhibited in our showroom window on Great Portland Street in London’s West End. So do drop by to have a look and go to the exhibition in Bethnal Green for the full dolls’ house experience. (Photo: V&A Museum)

A new cruise industry first


We have launched a new innovation in the passenger shipping industry with our Virtual Balcony for Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines.

The Virtual Balcony, which features on the company’s latest ship, Quantum of the Seas, solves the age old problem that inside staterooms have no windows or balconies, when every passenger wants a cabin with a view. The Virtual Balcony solves this by giving you real time views from the ship, with the advantage that you can choose whichever direction you look out to. The industry response has been very positive, with the leading media commentator, Cruise Critic, stating ‘the virtual balcony is more than just a novelty; it truly enhances the interior cabin experience’.

Luxurious Aircraft Interiors for Qatar Airways A380


Over the last few years, we’ve worked closely with Qatar Airways to design the premium aircraft interiors for their new A380.

The Qatar experience across the First Class Cabin and Premium Lounge is one of refined luxury. Rich, warm textures and finishes are infused with subtle lighting. Traditional Arabic patterns are modernised to create elegant features with intricate detail, imbuing the environment with bespoke luxury.

The understated opulence is set by the unique ceiling features, which provide a warmth and level of grandeur unexpected on an aircraft. Intricate patterns, details and lighting infuse every part of the design.

The aircraft is flying on the London to Doha route since October this year.
