John Jones Create Bespoke Leather Frame
Leather designer Bill Amberg has created bespoke pieces for some of the world’s most prestigious institutions from Asprey and Claridges in London to Burberry in Milan and lightweight, fireproof leather for Lufthansa Technic’s specialist planes.
As part of the London Festival of Architecture John Jones have worked with Bill Amberg to produce a beautiful bespoke leather frame. The frame will house one of a series of photographs customised with art and design by some of the country’s leading talents, displaying under-used parts of our urban landscape as areas of great potential. The project, a collaboration between charity Shelter and building design consultancy Urban Infill, seeks to encourage the viewer to look at London’s disused spaces in a different light and can also create their own ideas for the spaces on a public interactive wall.
The framed piece, along with the other works, will be for sale via silent auction, with all proceeds going to Shelter.
The exhibition closes and bidding ends at 6pm on Sunday 4 July.
