The Samsung Home Innovation at Harrods showcases products such as:
Daedalian Glass Studios were commissioned to create a series of decorative glass wall panels. These were to be featured within the Kelly Hoppen designed, Samsung Home Innovation Luxury Living Space at Harrods.
The brief was to take inspiration from a metallic looking tile design by Kelly Hoppen and to realise this using glass as the production material.
The design team at Daedalian Glass Studios created a water-jet, scored line pattern repeat, to feature as glass wall tiling. This pattern was cut into the surface of bronze coloured glass using a water jetting machine. To complete the design a mirror backing was applied.
"At Samsung, we are passionate about innovation and creating new technologies that genuinely change our customers’ lives for the better through features that make their lives easier. We are really proud of our new range of home appliances and have spent a great deal of time observing people around the world to find out what they are passionate about and how we can create products that help them in their daily lives.
We’ve then taken our technological expertise and applied it to what we use around our homes which has resulted in some of the appliances that are on show in Harrods. Naturally we wanted to display our premium products in a premium way, so by working with Kelly Hoppen MBE to create an amazing space and placing it in iconic store like Harrods, we have created an inspirational retail space that we feel will enhance our customers’ lives now and in the years to come."
