Rolls-Royce Motor Cars is set to captivate enthusiasts and connoisseurs alike at this year’s London Craft Week, presenting an extraordinary showcase of bespoke craftsmanship inspired by the city of London. From May 13 to 19, 2024, three remarkable pieces will grace the showroom of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars London, celebrating the tenth anniversary of this prestigious event.

Boris Weletzky, Regional Director for the UK, Europe, and Central Asia at Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, expressed his enthusiasm for the occasion, noting, “Craftsmanship is the cornerstone of Rolls-Royce, where creativity is continuously fostered. As a brand epitomizing perfection and artisanship, London Craft Week serves as a pivotal platform to honor British craftsmanship at its finest. For this milestone tenth edition, our artisans at the Home of Rolls-Royce in Goodwood have crafted a stunning array of bespoke pieces. These creations not only underscore London’s status as a global luxury hub but also pay homage to its rich heritage in architecture, art, design, and culture.”

The exhibition, strategically placed in the heart of Mayfair, draws heavily on London’s iconic status as a luxury capital, a fitting backdrop given the city’s historical ties to the marque. Notably, the Hon. Charles Stewart Rolls, co-founder of Rolls-Royce, was born nearby, and the company’s historic West End headquarters was located just a short distance from the current exhibition site.

Featured Bespoke Pieces

London Bonnet
A true artistic marvel, this bespoke Phantom bonnet features a detailed map of London, brought to life through over 100 hours of meticulous craftsmanship. Beginning with a base coat of Andalusian White, the piece underwent several layers of painting and airbrushing, accentuating Mayfair’s centrality. The final touches include hand-painted landmarks and a ‘London’ motif in gold leaf.

London Icons Door Card
This vibrant door card, a product of over 7,700 precise perforations, represents a blend of art and technology. Crafted in the Interior Trim Centre, the door card uses layers of Turchese and Scivaro Grey leather to evoke the River Thames and London’s iconic architecture through an innovative perforation technique.

Picnic Table
A nod to London’s architectural fame, this bespoke picnic table was crafted by an expert artisan who dedicated over 50 hours to assembling tessellated pieces that reflect the city’s renowned buildings. The finished product is both functional and a tribute to craftsmanship.

This bespoke collection, on display at Rolls-Royce’s flagship showroom on Berkeley Street, not only celebrates the art of luxury craftsmanship but also reinforces Rolls-Royce’s commitment to excellence and innovation in bespoke automotive art.
