Event Details

Oliver Messel was England’s most celebrated theatrical designer. He began his career in 1925 designing for Serge Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes. His designs were famed for their exquisite delicacy, impossible detail, subtlety of colour and inventive use of materials.  Thomas Messel’s lecture is based upon the life and work of his uncle Oliver Messel, and is accompanied by images that chronicle a unique and until now largely overlooked oeuvre that continues to influence the worlds of interior design, architecture, fashion and stage.

Thomas Messel is the nephew of Oliver Messel and is one of England’s most eminent furniture designers.  He has an international reputation for designing and creating furniture of Classical beauty. Thomas was involved in the refurbishment of two of Oliver Messel’s design projects, the Dorchester Hotel and Flaxley Abbey. ‘Oliver Messel: In the Theatre of Design’ was the winner of the Spear’s Book Award 2012.
