Eley Kishimoto: Centre Point

Work / Fashion

Eley Kishimoto creates a set of prints inspired by London’s unloved Centre Point

In the hierarchy of London’s iconic points, Centre Point is a curious case. Rising 385 feet into the skyline, it is visible for miles around and yet few Londoners have any real affection towards it, predominantly because most of us have no idea what goes on inside it. But maybe that’s going to change after the building’s owners Almacantar commissioned the brilliant Eley Kishimoto to create a series of patterns inspired by Centre Point.

Mark Eley of Eley Kishimoto said: “The power of the pattern is what gives Centre Point its majesty and, having been long inspired by the building, it was a very natural step to embark on this new venture with Almacantar last summer. Our aim is to translate the spirit of the building into our designs and it’s the iconic design, heritage and location of this landmark that makes this project so exciting for us.
 
“We’ve worked on all sorts of projects but this is the first time we’ve ever been commissioned to encapsulate the spirit of a building. Centre Point is the perfect muse.”
