Inside 2LG’s ‘gloriously bonkers’ bathroom at WOW!house

June 6, 2022

WOW!house – Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour’s first-ever designer showhouse – is an immersive walk-through design experience showcasing 17 rooms packed full of unique design ideas by 17 designers, including Kit Kemp and Rita Konig.

Each unique space – there’s a study, living room, dining room, three bedrooms, a dressing room, library, garden room and more – has been created by leading interior designers in collaboration with design houses such as Colefax and Fowler, Martin Moore and Morris & Co. But it’s 2LG Studio’s playful WOW!house bathroom scheme that has caught the attention of the Good Homes’ team…

‘Design Centre’s most ambitious project’

‘This is the Design Centre’s most ambitious project to date,’ says Claire German, CEO of Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour. ‘World-class decorators were given carte blanche to interpret a room. The results? An astonishing jewel box for living. Each space tells a compelling narrative – different but relevant styles, layers of pattern, colour and texture, carefully chosen furniture, lighting,
art and objets.

To create a truly immersive experience, contemporary conceptual sound artist and music producer Peter Adjaye created the perfect soundscape for each room, while Florence-based luxury fragrance creator Dr. Vranjes created a series of scentscapes. Plus, once you have left the showhouse, you are just steps from the showrooms where you can source the materials for you designs.

2LG’s WOW!house Bathroom

The 2LG Studio WOW!house Bathroom, created in collaboration with House of Rohl, is a place for self-indulgence. The aqua and cobalt blue colour scheme suggests tropical seas and jungle-framed beaches, while the deep, freestanding Amiata bath promises long, languid soaks in scented waters.

Jordan Cluroe and Russell Whitehead, the creative duo behind 2LG Studio, are known for their playful use of colour and for. Here, the duo delivers with a show-stopping oversized light sculpture, seemingly made of freshly squeezed toothpaste. The quirky pendant light is both space appropriate and gloriously bonkers.

‘Now more than ever, it is a time to take risks and embrace creativity, so expect something passionate, embracing a dark undertone that we have all felt, but ultimately turning to joyfulness,’ say Jordan and Russell.

‘Joyful minimalism’

‘We have written about our concept of joyful minimalism in our book, Making Living Lovely. We hope our WOW!house Bathroom will be a moment of joyful escapism,’ they add.

London-based 2LG Studio came to prominence through BBC Two’s The Great Interior Design Challenge, where Cluroe finished as runner-up in 2014. Today they are part of Channel 4’s re-worked classic series, Changing Rooms.

‘House of Rohl is delighted to be designing the WOW!House Bathroom in partnership with 2LG Studio,’ says James Smith, director, marketing & innovation, House of Rohl, which curates a portfolio of luxury decorative plumbing brands from around the world. ‘They are renowned for their fresh thinking and bold ideas.’
