Product Launch

Aria is injecting colour into London’s concrete jungle as Camille Walala transforms our store from the inside out. Walala has designed an exclusive range of furniture, ceramics and prints which will be displayed at Aria for London Design Festival 2015.

Forget Skandi inspired minimalism, for London Design Festival this September Aria is injecting colour into London’s concrete jungle. As a purveyor of the powerfully positive digital print, Camille Walala is in the house, and will be transforming our store from the inside out with her vibrant patterns.

Walala graduated with a degree in Textile Design from the University of Brighton in 2009 before she established her namesake brand in East London, where she continues to live. Her tribal POP style has made a name for itself across the globe, boasting exposure in Hong Kong, Sydney, New York, Paris and now Islington.

Walala’s artistic transformation of the plain monolithic building on the corner of Great Eastern Street in Shoreditch into a colourful eye-catching work of modern art is a homage to creativity, and has now become an iconic part of the East London landscape.

Walala will design an exclusive collection of furniture, ceramics and prints for us here at Aria ranging from shelving to armchairs, and will create a home-setting installation of her designs, making her mark on both the interior and exterior of our store. Aria has become Walala’s latest victim for #LDF15 as we prepare to let Walala take over and re-create her own little world: her quirky, vibrant Walala World. Her designs will be showcased in a room-setting that will burst outside the walls of our building as Aria becomes Walala’s latest canvas this September.

Walala creates pieces with the simple desire to put a smile on people’s faces; her work exerts her own energy and personality, and at Aria we are truly thrilled to have such an imaginative artist on board.

Aria invites you to celebrate Walala’s art work with us as part of London Design Festival, with an official product launch party taking place at 7.30 on Tuesday 22nd September.
