BOOK REVIEW: THE ART OF DESIGN - CANDY & CANDY

Rachel
Thursday 24 Nov 2011

Interior designers and property development managers Candy & Candy are known for their domination of high-end, high-tech, luxury flats in London and beyond.

Priding themselves on the ‘pursuit of perfection' and drawing on British heritage, quality and originality, their exuberant projects - such as the infamous One Hyde Park - consistently make the headlines.

This new, self-titled book reveals an indulgent glimpse into the tailor-made, lavish worlds they create, detailing everything in each stage of the process from concept through to completion; with concept sketches, concept developments, concept resolution, detailed design, furniture design, procurement, construction & fit-out and, finally, the all-important dressing.

Their holistic approach includes everything from conceptual architecture to the finishing touches, and this is displayed with equally top-quality photography, of silken-walled rooms and intricate marble carvings, glass-tube chandeliers and time-delay mirrors.

This huge, 223-page tome is essential reading for anyone thinking of investing in a Candy & Candy-designed residence - as long as you can lift it!
