THE ECCENTRIC FLAIR OF INTERIOR DESIGNER MARTIN BRUDNIZKI
Winner of Best Interior for GQ Food & Drink Awards with his Annabel’s project and featured among “Les 100 décorateurs du moment” for Architectural Digest France and among ELLE DÉCOR A-LIST 2019, interior designer Martin Brudnizki– founder of Martin Brudnizki Design Studio – has reached a high-profile status as a designer engaging with residential, hospitality, and commercial projects all over the world.
Annabel’s – London
His international vision has made the Swedish designer a top choice when it comes to professional decoration: with a degree in Economics at the University of Stockholm and, later, one in Interior Architecture at The American University in London, he displays the kind of academic background that shows versatile and wide-ranging tendencies with the perfect design skillset.
After numerous professional experiences in the design world – having worked for prominent architects and designers – Martin Brudnizkiestablished his London studio MBDS in 2000 and, later on, another one in New York in 2012. Since then the designer has brought his luxurious concepts in various projects around the world, such as The Club at The Ivy, Le Caprice, Scott’s and Sexy Fish restaurants, London nightclub Annabel’s, The Beekman hotel, and a lot of other London famous places – J Sheekey Oyster Bar, St Pancras Grand, Smith&Wollensky and Wild Honey – in addition to the redecoration of the Academicians’ Room at the Royal Academy.
The Beekman – New York
His extreme yet superbly elegant concepts have become Martin Brudnizki’s signature style and it literally has revolutionized the typical London flair: from Annabel’s to Aquavit to 45 Jermyn St. he has received numerous awards for his works (Best Interior at the GQ Food and Drink Awards 2017 and Wallpaper* Design Awards 2017 – Best outpost). His passion for furniture and lighting design collections has led him and Nicholas Jeanes to launch in 2015 And Objects, a separate product design studio that’s founded on the best craftsmanship and innovative expertise; numerous have been the collaboration, including The Urban Electric Co, George Smith, Porta Romana, Drummonds, and Christopher Farr Cloth.
The Beekman – a New York office converted in hotel in 2016 – highlights the classic eclectic flair that many of the Swedish designer’s projects present: the expert layering of different textures and bold fabrics is a prominent trademark, while vintage furniture and accessories from the 1940s to the 1970s create a chic atmosphere.
Aquavit – London
An eccentric remodeling of his is Annabel’s, on Mayfair’s Berkeley Square: Martin Brudnizki’s aim has been to create a fantastical world, in which animal-shaped elements and flower-decorated wallpapers translate a member’s club experience into an extraordinary one; the opulent place is an ode to flora and fauna-themed locations and the huge Pegasus sculpture in the grand staircase is just a little taste.
