Jumeirah Living Hosts Acclaimed Art Collection From Mark Humphrey

November 1, 2012

LONDON, November 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –

Grosvenor House Apartments by Jumeirah Living has unveiled the installation of the
Diamonds and Flames collection by leading artist designer Mark Humphrey at its luxury
accommodation on Park Lane in London.

Following the success of Humphrey’s debut solo show, Art in Life, held recently at
prestigious Mayfair gallery Osborne Samuel, select pieces from his portfolio are now being
showcased to residents in the reception and seven-storey vaulted atrium that lie at the
heart of the luxury apartments in London

.

Hailed as one of the most accomplished artist/designers of his generation, Mark
Humphrey’s work embraces the full artistic spectrum from fashion to sculpture and
architecture, using only the highest quality materials and cutting-edge manufacturing
technology to create statement pieces and heirlooms for future generations: ‘modern
antiquities’ and timeless spaces.

From spectacular statement pieces such as the Diamond Seat, a rock crystal and Belgian
black marble glowing bench, to the towering amber onyx and Belgian black marble Cone of
Flames and Quilted lamps to the stately Inter-locking and Diamonds for her Cocktail
illuminated side tables, each of the carefully chosen pieces will enhance and complement
the striking and stylish design of Grosvenor House Apartments.

Entitled Art in Life, the collection blurs the boundaries between art, sculpture and
design, reflecting a wider paradigm shift within the contemporary art market whereby art
is applied more purposefully to function within our day-to-day lives.

General Manager Astrid Bray commented: “We are delighted to host Mark Humphrey’s
innovative collection. He shows a true talent and his art perfectly complements our
aesthetic. We feel Mark’s pieces, mixing classic skills of design with contemporary
touches, will further set apart our hotel apartments as combining the discretion of an
exclusive Mayfair residence, with a more private form of luxury and an immediate sense of
home.”
