Celebrating a century of craftsmanship, LANSERRING has always embraced the symbiotic relationship between art and design.
We have cultivated a holistic approach that weaves through the tapestry of creativity, collaborating with a diverse array of artists, from designers and architects to artisans, visual artists, musicians, and dancers. In our latest video, which features the talents of The Knights, Pam Tanowitz Dance, Thomas Schauer and Taste in Motion, we showcase a visual celebration of our artistic endeavors.
The performance is an ode to this holistic approach, finding its stage in a place that resonates with the heart of every home—the kitchen in our New York show space. Much like the artists who inspire us, we explore the transformation of materials and their multifaceted applications.
Delving deeper into the layers of our artistic creation, we draw parallels between our roles in composing, designing, constructing and making.
In an unexpected move, we take this intimate performance from inside our creative haven and bring it to the world outside. At Lanserring, we’re proud to support our inspiring collaborators and to also be supported by their extraordinary talent. This journey, alongside world-class artists based in New York, reveals the raw evolution of ideas and feelings as they intertwine and shape a concept. Through this process, we’ve come to understand and appreciate each other’s crafts, transcending boundaries and uplifting everyone involved, be it creators or spectators.
“How are music and design connected. I would say that you’re dealing with a set number of variable elements. Whether it’s stone or wood or of sound or movement.” – Colin Jacobsen, Co-Artistic Director of The Knights.

Refined Larder Concept’s
Homes & Gardens journalist Linda Clayton has kindly acknowledged the merits of LANSERRING’s Pickling Cabinet, describing it as an exquisite piece of living room furniture inspired by larder designs. In her recent article, Clayton appreciates the seamless integration of culinary storage and interior design, highlighting our dedication to crafting functional art objects.
The Pickling Cabinet, meticulously handcrafted using a combination of American walnut, patinated brass, and marble, stands as a testament to our commitment to creating exceptional pieces. Its sleek, slatted sliding screens offer glimpses into the illuminated internal spaces, captivating observers with its understated elegance and meticulous attention to detail.
Clayton specifically admires the small shelves incorporated within the cabinet, which not only serve as practical storage spaces but also present captivating platforms for each pickling jar. This unique design element adds a touch of sophistication and ensures that the cabinet showcases its contents as individual works of art.
We at LANSERRING are delighted to announce that our Ladbroke Grove Townhouse project has garnered recognition with not one, but two features in Homes & Gardens magazine. The first article, penned by Linda Clayton and titled “Invisible kitchen ideas – 8 reasons why this subtle trend is taking over,” delves into the contemporary design movement of incorporating invisible kitchens into living spaces. This trend aims to seamlessly blend the kitchen into the overall aesthetic by concealing handles, appliances, storage, and even cooking areas.
The article by Linda Clayton explores the growing popularity of invisible kitchens and presents eight compelling reasons why this trend is making waves in the design world. By creating a harmonious integration between the kitchen and the living space, homeowners can enjoy a cohesive and uncluttered environment. The concealed elements contribute to a sleek and minimalist look, fostering a sense of openness and serenity. With the kitchen discreetly tucked away, the focus shifts to the surrounding decor and furnishings, allowing them to shine.
In addition to Linda Clayton’s feature, Jennifer Ebert contributes an article titled “Kitchen storage trends – 7 statement looks and innovations that will change kitchen design forever.” This article emphasizes the impact of handle-free kitchens in achieving a minimalist aesthetic. By eliminating visible handles, the kitchen maintains a clean and streamlined appearance. This design choice not only enhances the overall visual appeal but also promotes functionality and ease of use.
Both articles commend the Ladbroke Grove Townhouse project for its innovative incorporation of invisible kitchens and handle-free designs. At LANSERRING, we take pride in our commitment to pushing boundaries and redefining kitchen spaces. Our goal is to create environments that seamlessly blend form and function, enabling homeowners to enjoy living spaces that are both aesthetically pleasing and practical. We are grateful for the recognition from Homes & Gardens and will continue to innovate in the world of kitchen design.
At LANSERRING, we believe that bespoke craftsmanship deserves bespoke packaging. With this in mind, we have installed a state-of-the-art machine that allows us to create perfectly sized cardboard boxes for our products.
In the past, it has been standard practice that products are wrapped in bubble wrap, foam sheeting or similar materials, and then placed inside a cardboard box. However, with our new machine, we have eliminated the need for these additional materials. Our bespoke cardboard boxes securely hold and protect our products in place, completely eliminating the need for any plastic wraps or foam sheeting underneath. Through this innovative approach, we have calculated that we are saving an impressive 15,000m² of plastic foam sheeting/bubble wrap per year. We are proud to have made this significant impact on the environment and are committed to doing our part in creating a more sustainable future.
In addition, our bespoke packaging is 100% recyclable, further reducing our environmental footprint. We also reuse any off cuts as packers and other similar materials in-house, ensuring nothing goes to waste. And for the rest of the waste, we have established a recycling program to ensure that it is properly processed. At LANSERRING, we believe that our dedication to exceptional craftsmanship goes hand-in-hand with our commitment to sustainability, and we are continually seeking ways to innovate and improve upon our practices.
Our Blandford House project is an exemplary study in crafted contemporary style. Against a backdrop of opulent classical architectural detail, we created a bespoke kitchen with a clean finish. A layered natural material palette incorporates enticing textures and dynamic shading.
For the splashbacks at the sides of the space and the central kitchen island, we used two tones of leathered marble to emphasise a sense of depth and volume in the space. At our workshop, we hand-stained oak for the joinery to reach a rich treacle shade, and to compliment it we finished the brass with a soft brushed effect.
The space itself featured opulent classical cornicing, with which we needed to craft a relationship. While the joinery of the hob area meets the cornicing – offering a sense of permanence and intentionality – we chose to give the secondary elevation the look of having been placed. In doing so, we sought to create a sense of lightness to the installation and integration with the architectural features of the home.
In response to our client’s love of symmetry, we played with counterbalance and format with the joinery. The secondary elevation is bookended by full height cabinets, framed with brushed brass, but the wine cabinet at the left is presented in glass while the ingredient store uses veneer. The effect is one of lite symmetry.
The clients we worked with on this project were looking to craft their dream home and were long standing admirers of LANSERRING design. It was a delight to contribute to their elevated new lifestyle and we are immensely proud of what we created together.
In a story of restoration and new life, we present our design for Holly Park Hall.
At the centre of this grand heritage space we have placed an altar-like Breccia Capraia marble island. Kitchen storage and appliances have been concealed behind reintroduced traditional panelling. Meanwhile, arched beams have been introduced to an area of dropped ceiling height, making sense of imbalance.
To the side of the room is an insulated pantry. Sliding steel and glass doors frame tantalising fresh produce on elegantly backlit shelving. Marble splashbacks against the outside walls conduct away heat, keeping ingredients cool naturally.
The room is divided by a row of original archways, beyond which lies a comfortable living area. A full entertainment suite is concealed in the continued traditional panelling. As a whole, the space feels like something between a ballroom and a chapel.
The hero material of the CADENCE palette is a fascinatingly dynamic quartzite and the questions have been pouring in from our community. A frozen swirl of glittering crystals, smoke clouds and mossy scatters, this quartzite has captivated its audience and so we would like to take a moment on our Journal to celebrate its wonderful properties.
Quartzite is a durable natural stone and scores 7 out of 10 on the Mohs scale of mineral hardness, putting it ahead of granite. It will not get scratched if you use a knife without a chopping board or get scorched if you place a hot pan on its surface.
As for staining, quartzite has a lower porosity than marble and so is less vulnerable to spillages. Different quartzites have different porosities depending on how much pressure they were exposed to in their underground creation, so some slabs will benefit from a seal.
Sometimes quartzite is confused with man-milled ‘quartz’. Quartzite is a natural stone made up almost entirely of the mineral quartz. The ‘quartz’ spoken about in kitchens usually means a man-milled composite stone that is also made from the mineral quartz. The difference is that quartzite is quarried in blocks, and its patterning is natural and unique.
Quartzite is a stunning natural material and has a lot to offer both the aesthetics and functionality of your kitchen. As a worthy alternative to marble, quartzite uniquely features a crystalline structure that adds depth and dynamism to its surface: it’s like looking at a perfectly frozen lake. You can find a vast array of colours, swirls and sparkles all telling the story of seismic pressure and underground metamorphosis. We love that it stands up to the performance demands of a functional family kitchen without losing an inch of style.
We are delighted to announce the launch of a new collaboration – Cadence – with revered piano makers Steinway & Sons.
It was a pleasure to discover our shared heritage in European crafting traditions which, like LANSERRING, Steinway has brought into a new era for their field. As design and craftsmanship fanatics, our collaboration represents a meeting of minds to create a unique space and experience.
Cadence is at the lower ground level of a classic Victorian terraced house with a south facing garden. At the southeast corner of the LANSERRING-designed space stands the Steinway ‘Spirio’: the world’s finest high-resolution player piano. Using cutting-edge actuator technology, the Steinway ‘Spirio’ will play itself in an exact recreation of a grand master performance, creating an unadulterated listening experience of live piano music.
Behind this peerless piano is a curved wall which reflects its rich tonal sound outwards into the room. A bespoke designed sound-dispersing chandelier made from steam bent veneer hangs above. Its abstract curving leaf design is inspired by concert hall design of international quality. There are no speakers; the aural experience from every zone has been planned and augmented with LANSERRING design and craftsmanship.
The space itself is encircled by a band of concrete which wraps around the upper half of the walls. At a second depth, the lower half of the walls are clad in natural quartzite. Steel fins hold the walls and ceiling in place while at the same time creating shafts for natural light to pour down the walls. In the bays created by the fins, timber shelves sit proud of the wall, allowing the light to wash uninterrupted down the concrete face. The shelves are populated by artwork, sculptures, and musical memorabilia. Cabinets fitted in the bays next to the seating area feature metal and glass doors in classic LANSERRING vernacular, and the doors open on piano hinges.
At the southwest corner of the room is an elegant LANSERRING kitchen. Raised off the floor by brass legs in a unique faceted finish, the cabinetry manages to feel light and airy. Their fronts are detailed with flowing, organic lines which, on closer inspection, are found to be grooves that flow gracefully across the wood and metalwork. The design is continued on the kitchen island in front, referencing the flow of melody. On the worktop, the gas burners have been sunk into the quartzite, maximising the visual continuity of the crystalline structure. Here we see LANSERRING’s mastercraftmanship skill and attention to detail at work: this elegant, low impact design can only be achieved with an absolute mastery of stonework.
The entire experience has been designed to transform from day to night. The music playing on the Steinway will progress from light, relaxed daytime music to deeper atmospheric music for the evening. As the inhabitants of the space embrace the lower light and drinks party atmosphere, LANSERRING design will quietly adapt. Where during the day, sunlight would pour down the lightwells, our lighting plan in the evening uses up lights in the bottom of the bays between the fins for low-lit elegance.
At the top of the space, a walled winter garden has been sunk to ground level. In the evening, the inhabitants of the space can migrate here and enjoy the fire pit and the percussion of crackling embers with ‘Spirio’ music still flowing from indoors.
As a bespoke kitchen designer, LANSERRING is often asked to rise to exacting and unique briefs. Cadence is a space for a music lover and frequent host looking to revel in and share their passion for music. For LANSERRING, rising to a brief such as this is seizing the opportunity of bespoke design to augment the client’s lifestyle and transform their experience of their home.
