Róisín Lafferty to design House of Peroni 2019 at Royal Hibernian Academy in Dublin this August.
We have been waiting for quite a while to share some amazing news with you. Earlier in the year our KLD Creative Director, Róisín Lafferty, was asked to design the House of Peroni installation which will be feature at the RHA in August 2019. House of Peroni is returning to Dublin this summer for its fourth instalment, from Thursday, 22nd August, until Sunday, 1st September, 2019. Part of a global House of Peroni series, which includes events in Barcelona, Paris, Stockholm, Santiago and Johannesburg, this year’s Dublin residency will see the Royal Hibernian Academy on Ely Place, Dublin 2, transformed into a stylish Peroni inspired experience.
Earlier in spring, Peroni Nastro Azzurro took nine creatives, known as the Creative Council, on a trip to Puglia in Italy, including three Irish creatives – KLD’s Roisin Lafferty, multi award winning designer; Killian Crowley, chef de partie at Michelin-starred Aniar restaurant in Galway, and Kev Freeney, creative director of Algorithm, who are widely known for their highly technical and creative productions. They were immersed in the style of Peroni along with the beauty of authentic Italian design, culture, architecture, food and craftsmanship, and will bring this inspiration back to Dublin to create this year’s House of Peroni residency experience.
Roisin Lafferty will be tasked with designing the aesthetics of the RHA interior. Following her trip to Puglia, Roisin commented:
‘Brimming with sophistication and elegance, Puglia’s aesthetic of refined arches, understated whites, and glistening jewel seascapes, framed the chilled and inviting environment. I am really excited to capture some of its charm and character in this year’s House of Peroni design’.
In Italy, Roisin stayed in Masseria Ceravolo, a farm house steeped in history and tradition that was lovingly restored and now is an elegant country house. Rosin will combine the style of Peroni with the beauty of Puglia in her creation. To say this is exciting is an understatement, all of us at KLD are looking forward to working with these great talents to create something incredible, and in such an amazing location the RHA.
The following is a short video we made behind the scenes at a promo shoot for House of Peroni at the RHA.
