“A fun experience,” wrote The Daily Telegraph of the spectacular Jimi Hendrix Suite created by Mary Gannon in collaboration with legendary graphic designer Andie Airfix for The Cumberland hotel in London. Rather than slavishly follow sixties design, Mary has reworked elements of the style and introduced a sense of fun in homage to Hendrix’s endearing sense of humour. Standout features include lovingly sourced vintage fabrics, a limited edition hand-stitched leather sofa, and floor-to-ceiling fibre optic light. Hung on the wall is a Flying V guitar, sourced and customised by Andie Airfix to replicate the one Hendrix hand-painted for his European tour in 1967-68. Tying the psychedelic scheme together is a swirl of hand-painted colourful stripes, carefully chosen to epitomise the spirit of the time, the man and his music.
