I’d never walked down South Molton Street. It’s just a few second’s walk from Bond Street tube station but until today I didn’t know it existed. The street is a wide, fully pedestrianised collection of boutique shops and artisan café’s. It’s nice enough but Camille Walala’s graphic patterns make it a whole lot more fun. It’s part of this year’s London Design Festival.
With her renowned colourful, graphic patterns and bright, bold shapes, Walala has created a collection of weird and wonderful street furniture. 10 benches, with accompanying planters, zig zag down the street. They’re overhung by brilliantly oversized bunting converting the street into a joyous parade of colour.
And the best bit is that they’re here to stay. Often projects for the Design Festival are only temporary and it feels a shame. These benches are set to stay put for the time being. They will provide some much needed seating for locals and a draw to the area for visitors. I’ll definitely be back.
