Marokka brings King Gus the Giant Gorilla to Top Drawer
Standing at over 3 metres high, Marokka, the London design house will showcase King Gus, its first public art sculpture, at Top Drawer event held in London Olympia from 12th to 14th January 2020.
The supersized polygonal gorilla is a celebration of Marokka’s stunning portfolio of stylish products. Gus is one of a collection of more modest sized angular sculptures that have been created reflecting on architectural and sculptural shapes, the sculptures are designed from the inside out, reinventing traditional shapes by taking them back to the DNA of their internal, architectural form. The collection includes Frank the French bulldog which was the original starting point for Marokka.
Launching at Top Drawer will also be a selection of homeware products that feature the brands distinctive artwork including prints, gift wrap, cushions, aprons and umbrellas. There will also be more product launched throughout 2020.
Marokka is proud to support The Aspinall Foundation, which helps to promote the incredible work it does to protect endangered animals around the world and its commitment to returning rare and endangered animals back to their natural habitats. For every Gus sold 10% of profits are donated to this amazing charity.
