FATIMA DE LA ESPADA AND LUIS DE OLIVEIRA, CO-FOUNDERS OF DE LA ESPADA,
De La Espada Residence London
All events are invitation only.
Over five days, Fatima and Luis will foster discussions about subjects that matter, with a programme of lectures by a diverse and thoughtful range of speakers exploring concepts around craft, the meaning of the objects and concepts that surround us, and the importance of challenging ourselves to take action.
The lectures will take place in the comfort of their west London home with De La Espada furniture by designers including Studioilse, Neri&Hu, Luca Nichetto and Matthew Hilton. De La Espada believes in the importance of craft and the need for a dramatic review of our consumerist culture. We see an urgent need for change in the way we consume energy and believe that a greater regard for both the arts and sciences can drive society toward lower energy consumption.
