Autoban: Series of Four Installations
Over the next 12 months, Autoban will unveil a series of four unique and interactive installations at exhibitions in key cities worldwide. The first of the series will be unveiled in New York during ICFF, with subsequent entirely new installations appearing in London during London Design Festival, Kortrijk during Design Biennale Interieur, and one further international city to be announced.
The next 12 months will take De La Espada and our diverse family of projects to key cities worldwide including New York, London, Kortrijk and one more location to be announced. We will launch new products at every event, and present a total of four unique installations by Autoban across the events. Our projects will be presented in a generous 200 square metre (over 2000 square foot) space at each exhibition. We will not exhibit in Milan, rather focusing on the diversity of design around the world, without singling out one heterogenous event.
ICFF, New York, May
Our first exhibition of the year will be at New York's ICFF (International Contemporary Furniture Fair) in May. A generously sized central location in the exhibition hall will be home to the first Autoban installation in the series. The remaining space will showcase the work of Matthew Hilton and Studioilse, and for the first time in the United States, Søren Rose Studio. Our legendary New York party and our more intimate ‘Designer Dinner’ will coincide with ICFF.
London Design Festival, September
In September, during London Design Festival, we are merging our successful Tramshed event with the much talked about, designjunction, to create London's most important design destination. Autoban will unveil their second specially designed installation, the second of four for this twelve month period. Our further brands will exhibit on adjacent stands, and will come together in a unique space curated to reflect current trends in interior design. We will also invite guest exhibitors within the Tramshed division of designjunction, sharing space with companies and projects we admire. Don't miss the launch party for this event, set to be a highlight of the
Design Biennale Interieur, October
In October we will participate in the world renowned Design Biennale Interieur in Kortrijk, Belgium. Within a space of about 200 square metres, a third and completely unique installation by Autoban will deserve a visit by connoisseurs worldwide.

7 Enoteca and Pizzeria, Oakville Ontario, Canada
Located in the quaint village of Old Oakville just outside Toronto, this 50 seat eatery was created by Brayan Stoyanov of design studio, Stoyanov. Inspired by an evening in the Villa Lysis on the Island of Capri, the interior takes you to the coast of Napoli not just in atmosphere and design but in the flavours of the food. Built into the basement of the Town’s historic post office, vaulted marmorino ceilings envelop the guests as they dine from the comfort of custom designed bar stools and tables, and Matthew Hilton's Fin Dining Chair and Colombo Dining Armchair. Leathered marble bar tops bring back the feel of century-old weathered stone while the wood burning oven offers the senses complete fulfillment.
