Rossana Lifestyle hosted dining series 9 in association with Tempus Magazine at the London flagship store in Mayfair, featuring visionary artist Mark Humphrey. The theme of the evening ‘From Matchsticks to Marbles’, allowed guests to hear Mark Humphrey in discussion with Scott Manson of Tempus, followed by an exclusive performance by Fabio D’Andrea.
Guests were treated to a champagne reception whilst they admired the Rossana collections and ambient music filled the room which set the tone for the evening.
As guests gathered around the K-in K-out, surrounding them were beautiful sculptures and artwork created by Mark, whilst he provided a fascinating insight into his journey and art designs, starting from the matchstick maquettes to the marble showpieces.
‘I think luxury is all about custom made and having something made specially to you. Something that the end user has been part of. So, luxury is not so much about the material, not so much about the detail, in my opinion, but all about this is a one-off made for you. That’s how I feel luxury, and what luxury is all about’ Explained Mark.
Following the discussion, guests were escorted to the Bosendorfer Grand Piano, Beethoven Edition where Fabio D’Andrea performed a personally composed ensemble of music.
Thereafter, guests were served a Michelin-star level seven-course tasting menu, prepared by Forge Hospitality. During the meal, conversation flowed as did the wine. Guests in attendance included Wilhelmina Forsyth and several members of London’s high society.
