To celebrate the European launch of the Dodie Thayer for Tory Burch Lettuce Ware collection
, we teamed up with Wallpaper*
magazine and asked London artist Bethan Laura Wood
to create an art installation inspired by the tabletop items. And last night, in the midst of Salone del Mobile
, we finally unveiled the work. Here’s your first glimpse at Wood’s creation above, which is currently in the windows of our new Milan flagship
on Via Della Spiga 7 — where the event took place — and will travel to our boutiques in Munich and London.
The hand-painted installation, titled Lettuce Entertain You, features a nearly five-foot-tall sculpture in the shape of a massive canapé and six smaller versions; all incorporate plates from the lettuce ware collection into the design. So how exactly did Wood come up with the fantastical idea to do oversized canapés with a starter inspiration point in Tory Burch and Dodie Thayer? Read our interview with the artist here.
