Candy & Candy
Designer description Candy & Candy
Nic & Christian Candy brothers established a studio in London in 1999. Their business started with the purchase of an apartment which they renovated, taking £6,000 from their grandmother. They quickly turned the company into one of the world's leading interior design houses with loud real estate projects. Candy & Candy also became famous for designing private jets, cars and superyachts.
The focus of the Candy & Candy studio is on full customisation and unique design. Most of the interior elements are made to order in a single copy.
The studio's clients include pop star Kylie Minogue, actress Gwyneth Paltrow, Russian oligarch Boris Berezovsky and Indian steel magnate Lakshmi Mittal. The bulk of the company's orders are for real estate, but the portfolio also includes motor superyachts.
Cooperation with shipyards
In the marine segment, Candy & Candy works mainly with Italians. The company has carried out one-off projects for famous shipyards, including Viareggio SuperYachts and Benetti.
Despite its small yachting portfolio, the studio has achieved recognition in the community. In 2010, the SEALYON (formerly Candyscape II) was awarded a Neptune statue by Boat International, and in 2011 it won the International Design & Architecture Awards for Living Space Design.
Nick and Christian themselves are not directly involved in the projects, but are excellent managers. They have been able to put together a small, strong team of professionals ready to take on any project that requires creativity. In addition to interior design, the brothers are known as major developers of luxury real estate in the UK.
