Pallant House Gallery

Colin St John Wilson

A compelling blend of historic architecture and modern art, Pallant House Gallery in Chichester was extended by Colin St John Wilson to house his own superb collection, focussed on pop art. The handle was custom-designed for this project – and was the last product designed by one of the architects who defined Post-War British architecture. The pull handles are ribbed in an evocation of leather wrapping but here achieved by turning from solid stainless steel bar. The ribs humanise the feel of the grip and create a haptic and distinctive series of experiences through the galleries.
