Northacre is lead sponsor of the V&A and Crafts Council exhibition – What is Luxury?
Northacre is the lead sponsor of the V&A and Crafts Council exhibition What is Luxury? which runs from 25 April – 27 September 2015.
What is Luxury? will present exceptional examples of contemporary design and craftsmanship. It will also highlight conceptual projects that interrogate fundamental ideas of luxury, its production and future.
Northacre’s reputation has been built on its intrinsic understanding of luxury combined with a passionate attention to detail and working with the finest craftsmen, values that chime with the content of the exhibition.
The exhibition’s exploration of how objects are defined as luxurious by the excellence of their design and craftsmanship mirrors Northacre’s approach of reviving and developing heritage, landmark buildings into luxury homes.
Niccolò Barattieri di San Pietro, CEO, Northacre said; “We are delighted to partner with the V&A and Crafts Council on such an engaging and thought-provoking exhibition. Northacre is distinguished by its refined and innovative approach to luxury residential development and its commitment to craftsmanship, themes which are explored and interrogated by What is Luxury? It is this utmost respect for luxury, and what it embodies, that Northacre shares with the exhibition.”
