In celebration of Earth Day 2019, The London EDITION has partnered with The Earth Issue Magazine on a week of programming and activations. The series will start on 15th April with the unveiling of a site-specific installation by celebrated Indian artist Svabhu Kohli and will continue with a series of panel discussions, workshops and wellness events all focused around the theme of environment and sustainability.
Kohli’s installation around the glass cube entrance to the hotel’s Lobby Bar will remain in place for one week, leading up to Earth Day on the 22ndApril. Kohli’s stylized illustrations of flora and fauna offer a dreamy glimpse into the artist’s love of nature and imaginative approach to art. Wrapped around the glass cube entrance, the artwork uses a sustainable alternative to vinyl made from polypropylene film, which is PVC free and can be fully recycled.
