The leading British designer duo Jimmie Martin will exhibit their exclusive furniture pieces in the Urban Art House Gallery Store in Amsterdam from the 9th of April until the 30th of June. Every Jimmie Martin piece is hand painted and is inspired by the the worlds of art, graffiti, fashion and the famous Union Jack.
After officially launching Jimmie Martin Ltd in 2004, the designer duo immediately won the award for “Best New Designer in Practice” at the Design and Decoration Awards in 2005. The English press praised them as “Rule Breakers” and “Risk Takers’ in the field of interior design, for their extravagant Louis XlV designs, which are a mix of antique French with a touch of punk and rock ‘n’ roll. They are also known for designing the legendary golden throne for the spectacular performance of Madonna during the Super Bowl in 2012.
In addition to celebrity clients such as Kelly Osbourne, Jamie Oliver and Kylie Minogue, companies such as Selfridges, Liberty London and the St. Martins Hotels frequently display the “one-off” designs of the duo. The hand painted furniture will be available in limited edition at the Urban Art House Gallery Store.
