Inside Rolls Royce

Last weekend the Saatchi Gallery in King’s Road hosted a one-off event supported by Rolls Royce. Basically, from Thursday to Sunday, all rooms in Saatchi was dedicated to exhibit what’s “Inside Rolls Royce”. On arrival the first thing you are met by is a brand new Rolls Royce, which visitors could have their picture taken with:

It was nice, indeed, but I was much more interested in the vintage model! So cool! What’s not to love? Everything about it is adorable – just look at the headlights:

The “Inside Rolls Royce” exhibition, is probably the most interactive and artistic of it’s kind – that I have ever visited. There was so much engagement, and even something as simple as explaining “we have more than 44,000 colours to choose from” was done through impressive light installations and interactive set-ups:

Being a luxury car brand, it was to be expected that even small components would have an exclusive finish, but I have to say, I was completely blown away by the detail and textures! Wood finishings, embroidery, choice of colour – all very impressive:

One part of the exhibition, I really liked, was the umbrella installation. The fact that Rolls Royce cars have umbrellas in the side of the door is just so excessive – and oh so cool and totally fabulous!

As part of the exhibition, there was a drawing room with stencils and line drawing of a Rolls Royce model, encouraging visitors of all ages and levels of skills to contribute. The results varied a lot, and I found some truly mind blowing drawings:

And then this – which made me laugh so hard:
