WHITLEY, UNITED KINGDOM – Oct 7, 2013: Wallpaper Handmade, the must-see exhibition during Milan's Salone del Mobile, makes its London debut today at Harrods with a spectacular ‘best of presentation’ and five unique new pieces produced in collaboration with Jaguar. To celebrate the occasion, Jaguar Advanced Design presented the stunning C-X17 concept vehicle for the first time in the UK, positioned outside the luxury Knightsbridge store and alongside two other exciting Jaguar design concepts; the C-X75 hybrid hypercar and Jaguar heritage-inspired Project 7 sports car.

Over 50 Wallpaper Handmade pieces, produced by the likes of Hermès, Alfredo Häberli, Harry Winston, Konstantin Grcic, Isay Weinfeld, Paul Cocksedge, Michael Anastassiades, the late David Collins, Barber Osgerby, Brioni, Naoto Fukasawa, Louis Vuitton, Sam Hecht and Poltrona Frau to name but a few, will be on display across 12 windows in the iconic Harrods store.

They will be joined by five new concept products which explore Jaguar's design language and advanced technology, by Moritz Waldemeyer, Neri & Hu, Mathieu Gustafsson, Fredrikson Stallard and Salvatori & Jaguar Advanced Design.
