Felder Felder Apartment at The Henson
If you want to inject an interior design project with fresh appeal, enrolling the creative skills of professionals from other design disciplines can be an inspired way to add a new edge. Entrepreneurial property developers Londonewcastle have put that theory to the test with the help of German fashion design duo Felder Felder, who have just designed the interiors for an exclusive apartment in the Henson Development in north London.
In July, Stylus reported on the Henson development — 46 canal-side apartments in a Victorian warehouse, that was formerly Jim Henson’s Muppet workshop. Combining London-centric heritage with a series of modernising collaborations, including designers such as Jason Bruges and Tom Dixon, the residential space is a perfect example of an increasing tendency for high-end creatives to switch traditional arenas in order to expand on their original vision.
This new collaboration, with Felder Felder, is inspired by an aesthetic of "Punk meets Posh". The duo has designed the entire flat, including using a fabric from their spring/summer 2010 collection for the couch and embellishing the walls with their own fashion illustrations.
