Legendary Wedgwood porcelain accessories — for the first time in Russia. Josiah Wedgwood, English potter and entrepreneur, is called «the father of English porcelain», while Wedgwood manufacturer remains synonymous to traditional five o’clock tea since 1759. The exposition includes more than 500 fragile and rare tableware items from Lady Lever Art Gallery, the State Hermitage, the Tretyakov Gallery and the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts. The final note: modern-day Wedgwood items.
Vases, tea sets, jewelry boxes, as well as decorated fireplaces and exquisite accessories — such exposition demanded appropriate design solutions. We took our inspiration from the image of an English landscape garden, using the replicas of lithographies and etchings.
The items on display were virtually asking for corresponding exhibition design with authentic interior items. We created the composition of vases, which reminded of a massive pile of treasures. The office was decorated with a set of men's suits and a display case with men's accessories. We also recreated dinner table-setting and traditional English tea party.
