Welles Reimagined London Launch Party

06 September 2022

Panel Talk: Customisation in Design

As part of Gabriel Scott's 10th anniversary, six international designers have reimagined the Welles Chandelier and come up with their own interpretations. To celebrate these six new lighting fixtures being formally added to Gabriel Scott's collection, design writer Becky Sunshine was joined by Scott Richler and three of the designers - Kelly Hoppen, CBE, Sybille de Margerie and Guan Lee - to discuss the new Welles Reimagined collection as well as the topic of customisation in design and who and what is driving the greater demand for customisation in design, in Gabriel Scott's London showroom.
