Showroom de Gournay
For the showroom, Irakli has designed a subtle, soothing 'Wild Grasses' panoramic, revised from a pattern he first created with de Gournay for a residential project in Moscow. Originally inspired by an image of an 18th century Japanese Edo period screen, Irakli has taken the motif of towering obana grasses, complete with delicate feathery 'tail heads' dancing in a gentle breeze, and created a new pattern which he has swathed across both walls and curtains, enveloping the room in sumptuous silk.

Into the mix, Irakli has teamed seductively curved sofas and armchairs with triangular side tables, abstract bases for both dining and coffee tables, and rough, bulbous table lamps (all exclusively created by the designer for the space) with vintage lighting by French designer Max Ingrand (once artistic director of FontanaArte). "A little bit of asymmetry adds life to a space," he enthuses.
