Royal Opera House Silks

Bespoke Silk / Design Studio Projects

The Royal Opera House in London commissioned a set of 12 large hand painted silk banners illustrating their rich history.

After visiting their archive and agreeing on the most important images to be included, a series of designs was created by Kinetika’s Artistic Director.

After client approval, the designs were carefully hand painted by our team of artists to the correct scale. After fixing the dye, the silks were flame retarded and then hemmed and finished to the specification for hanging and were first displayed in the Paul Hamlyn Hall in Covent Garden for the Deloitte Ignite Festival.

Hand painting onto silk gave the designs a vibrancy that is difficult to replicate any other way and was the perfect match for telling the story of this great arts institution.
