UK-based luxury brand designer Martin Kemp, the name behind Ten Trinity Square in London, Hugo Boss and Yves Saint Laurent boutiques, makes its entry into the Indian luxury market with the Martin Kemp Design tying up with K Raheja Corp for their super-premium project Artesia in Worli, Mumbai.
Martin Kemp Design is well known as a highly creative design studio that has produced some of the world’s finest solutions for interiors, developments, architecture, etc. In the abovesaid venture, Kemp has been entusted with the design of common areas including club house, lobby areas, fine dining restaurants, libraries, business suites, a mini-theatre and the poolside in the project where certain buyers are even looking to customise their houses of 20,000 sqft that would be valued about Rs 100 cr.
Kemp’s globally renowned firm has worked on briefs including Mayfair homes, polo estates, superyachts, private jets and the residences at the Four Seasons, UK. “The home being dressed here is very similar to the one we would create in New York or London. The market is now an international one, which has levelled people’s aspirations and expectations.
Kemp, who has been visiting India for over a decade, commented on the positive development he has seen in India’s infrastructure over the last three years. He also added that the country needs to attract the wealth and investment here, which will further motivate the global traveller to invest in the city and multiply opportunities.
Kemp noted that change in India, and Mumbai in particular, has been enormous over the years. As a European visiting India, I have seen huge infrastructural changes in the city over the past 10 years. The development of wealth and infrastructure has dramatically improved. As an outsider, my perception is, this city is poised to become something very special, it may take a little time, but it is clearly aiming to be another best in the world,” Kemp said. He has been visiting India for 10 years now.
