To mark the opening of our first UK showroom in the heart of London’s West End, which also coincides with London Design Week, we will be hosting “CUTTING THROUGH TIME”, a fascinating project with the boutique British watch company Sekford that explores the evolution of typography and lettering together.
Every day of the London Design Festival an expert letter cutter will be demonstrating their craft live in-store, from 1pm. With each cutter taking inspiration from a particular period of epigraphy and working on a different type of Salvatori stone, they will produce a few characters which, by the end of the week, will form a full alphabet and set of numerals – charting a history of lettering in stone from ancient Greece and Rome through the Renaissance to the Bauhaus, Gill and Johnston and Post-Modernism.
We’re also holding an opening party (it would be rude not to!), so if you’d like to join us, please send a quick note to email@example.com and we’ll send you the details.
