Sipping back delicious Aperol Spritzers, guests were treated to an evening of carefully curated luxury designs and artworks at Ultimo’s Osborne Park showroom on Friday October 23.
“I really wanted to illustrate how different artists works could co-habit a space without creating tension for the interior palette, and instead actually accentuate it,” says Ultimo’s creative director and interior designer, Andrew Thornton Hick. “This attention to detail fuses original and authentic art and design.”
The Cultivate 15 exhibition ran over a month, from Saturday October 24 – Saturday November 21, and featured new works from Linton & Kay’s exclusive artists alongside the latest collections straight from Milan from Ultimo’s European design houses.
The Ali Bodycoat Trio provided live entertainment for the evening as guests perused street art pieces by Andy Faraday and a live wall installation by Hayley Welsh.
“Beyond seeing people really engaging with the interiors and debating art and design, it was wonderful to instigate conversations on innovation and craftsmanship across different mediums: oil paint to solid inlays, live artworks to lighting design,” Andrew explains.
Launched for the first time in Australia at Cultivate 15 and exclusively sold at Ultimo were new collections from luxury European furniture brand, Ceccotti, alongside new collections from Cattelan, Italia, Fiam, Gallotti & Radice, Freistil, Rolf Benz, Hulsta, Now! by Hulsta, cc-Tapis, The Rug Establishment, and Guaxs.
“I’m very proud to bring Ceccotti Collezioni to Perth,” says Andrew. “It’s one of only a few remaining design houses in the world that really does operate as an artisans workshop, sculpting from solid timbers and precious metals to create the most stunningly original works.”
