Revealed at the Nettie Horn Art Gallery on Vyner Street in the heart of London’s contemporary art district, the installation was a unique project involving six international, contemporary artists who have collaborated to create a premium and stylish bar that offers a whisky drinking experience beyond the ordinary.
The artists, working together for the first time, were invited to create the individual elements for a bespoke Ballantine’s 12 bar that embodied the spirit of looking beyond the ordinary. From across Europe, the artists included Oskar Zieta (Polish designer and architect), Lee Broom (British interior and product designer), Creatmosphere (French light artists), Rolf Sachs (Swiss furniture designer), Luis Galliussi (Argentinian interior designer) and Jovo Bozhinovski (Bulgarian architect and designer).
Working across a range of disciplines, each artist was chosen for their award-winning creativity in their respective fields. Whilst the process had been open and collaborative, with designers sharing their ideas and concepts with each other over a three month period, the works themselves bring to life the brand’s creative platform of “taking you beyond.”
