David Collins

The design world lost a legend this week, when David Collins lost his battle with skin cancer.

As I spend a lot of time in London, where Collins was based, I had the pleasure of being able to surround myself in some of his most notable work: The Wollesley, The Blue Bar, The Delaunay, The Claridges Bar, The Bar at the Connaught and one of my all time favorites, the pagoda bar back at the Langham Hotel ...and the list of accomplishments goes on and on.

What drew me in and made me a big fan of his work, was the brilliant and seamless mix of materials, the sense of drama, yet always the feeling as though you belonged.

We will long be inspired ...
