Soane Britain

Biography

“Soane Britain is delighted to have three of their British made designs in the public rooms of Admiralty Arch.  The generously proportioned Nureyev Trolley was inspired by a 1940s drinks trolley once owned by the Russian ballet dancer, it is made in Sheffield by silversmiths.  The elegant Grissini lamp, with its distinctive chevron design, is Art Deco inspired and made by metalworkers in Sussex and The Curlew Lamp’s refined shape is made from hand beaten iron by our blacksmith in the Forest of Dean.”
