Media I The Revolutionary x Cover StoryJan 14, 2021
“The revolution is not an apple that falls when it is ripe. You have to make it fall.” - Che Guevara.
In this month's issue of Commercial Interior Design, the industry magazine talk to our Owner Paul Bishop to uncover what's on the cards for the Interior Designer of the Year 2020 in 2021.

Talking more about recent projects, including developments in The Bahamas, SLS Hotel & Residences, Deseo in the ME Dubai by Zaha Hadid, a hotel in Morocco and many more, it's clear that Bishop remains more driven than ever in creating breathtaking destinations across the globe whilst always daring to achieve the unexpected...
