Masterpiece Lecture Theatre
ODE TO ‘DEBO’ THE DUCHESS OF DEVONSHIRE
The Lecture Theatre at Masterpiece 2016 was designed by Katharine Pooley as an ode to ‘Debo’ the late Duchess of Devonshire. The space included luxurious finishes including gold leafing and emerald green that were associated with the Duchess and her Chatsworth House estate in Derbyshire.
Artwood was the timber flooring of choice for this decadent space and were given a brief of providing a stunning but understated finish incorporating gold leafing. The designers at Artwood created a completely bespoke layout pattern and finish for the project.
The panelling format was a modern interpretation of classic parquetry design, utilising intricate detailing including miniature chequer patterning at the entrance and a fluid border fitted around the whole area. The stage area was clad and edged with the same exquisite detailing.
Artwood incorporated 4 subtly different finishes within the floor including the use of both matt and gloss levels of sheen within each individual panel. The finishes selected were all from the Artwood Precious Metal Collection incorporating a content of real gold which has been hand inlaid into the timber grain. The lighting within the theatre beautifully picked up the gold content and the varying sheen levels to accentuate and highlight the true beauty of this completely unique flooring.

The Artwood Bespoke Collection offers our clients the ability create their own, unique finish for use within their interior scheme.
For this private residence in London, Artwood created 2 new finishes in collaboration with the interior design firm René Dekker Design. A matt metallic finish from our Haze Collection was modified to achieve the exact shade required for the clients scheme and a second complimentary finish with hand inlaid metallic gold grain was also created. The 2 finishes were laid in alternating lines of a herringbone pattern at a 2:1 ratio.
"It was most important for us to have a design that made a statement; by contrasting the colours and adding the gold as an extra dimension meant that we could use the Artwood product to maximum impact. It's a complete triumph, breath-taking and we are thrilled with the outcome." René Dekker, Creative Director
