Francis Sultana became famous for his peculiar furniture design pieces. His studio – Francis Sultana Design Studio – has 10 years, and the experienced designer has a lot to say about his journey! It’s amazing to see the journey of Francis Sultana! A history of 10 years, filled with amazing design projects and unique furniture design pieces. “When I set up my own practice 10 years ago, it was a big step to leave the [David Gill] gallery to follow the dream I always had, as I had previously put this aside to help David to establish the gallery.”
The design studio is based in the same building as Favid Gill Gallery, where Sultana is nowadays the Artistic Director. “The joy of seeing a project completed and a sense of achievement. Perfection, or the pursuit it, is my biggest demon – and perfection does not exist but it is what pushes me to continue.”
Francis Sultana is the name chosen for many international designers that have huge contemporary art and design collections. The interior designer doesn’t hide the passion for bespoke design, and he tells that all his amazing projects and designs were inspired by his travel experiences and people he have met. “Loved for his unique ability to merge the residential requirements of a domestic space with often large scale visual art, sculpture, and installation pieces, his design studio is working on projects in the UK and across Europe as well as in China and in the US. ‘Most of his clients are people with a unique creative vision that also to enjoy the journey at this level where we commission and inspire’”, explained Francis Sultana.
“I always collaborate with designers and artists like Mattia Bonetti, Michele Oka Doner as well as luxury design houses such as Puiforcat and Hermes.” He is considered one of the best interior designers by several international publications, and he was also a UK designer to be featured in Architectural Digest USA’s annual AD100.
His inspiring interiors are usually featured in magazines all over the world. Actually, he was the only British designer invited to be part of AD Collections in Paris. “Now that my first book project is completed ahead of its publication [in November with Vendome] I have already started to embark on a project – a play. It’s a dream that I must follow. Then of course there is my cultural and diplomatic path, as Ambassador of Culture for Malta which is still in its infancy but one I am very excited to continue on“.
Last year, he was announced as Ambassador of Culture or Malta, where he’s taking care of the opening of the new museum space that will open in 2021. “I see design pieces that the design is more “3D Animated” that could well become a trend, it reminds me of the influences of Memphis in a parallel way.” However, Sultana wants to believe that the future of the design industry relies on sustainable projects that respect the environment. “Quality lasts, which ultimately means sustainability. In the end, I always wanted to create antiques of the future creating pieces that are timeless and can support our fragile world”, said the interior and furniture designer.
IT’S TIME TO CREATE AN ART DÉCO AMBIANCE!
But, what is Art Déco?
“Art Deco, also called style moderne, movement in the decorative arts and architecture that originated in the 1920s and developed into a major style in western Europe and the United States during the 1930s. Its name was derived from the Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes, held in Paris in 1925, where the style was first exhibited. Art Deco design represented modernism turned into fashion. Its products included both individually crafted luxury items and mass-produced wares, but, in either case, the intention was to create a sleek and antitraditional elegance that symbolized wealth and sophistication”
