2 of the 5 Permanent Sculptures Louis Vuitton Commission Selfridges Town House, London

Barnaby Barford was recently commissioned to produce 5 permanent sculptures for Louis Vuitton's new 3 story Town House in Selfridges, London.

A spiralling glass elevator transports the customer on a journey of elegance at Louis Vuitton's new three-flour store inside London's Selfridges. Complementing the collection of leather goods, menswear and womenswear are specially commissioned artworks by Barnaby Barford, Hayakawa Katsumi and Bumpo Teppei. 

Ceramic sculptor Barford's works are based on his original series The Seven Deadly Sins."I wanted to create a harmonious and beautiful series of sculptures that were indefinable, intriguing and ambiguous. I don't want to take away from the setting but want to enhance the experience, bringing something unexpected to the viewers."
