The Kinks: Waterloo Sunset

For London Design Festival 2014, designers like Tom Dixon and Industrial Facility made playlists for #SuperStimuli

“A chair is still a chair, even when there’s no one sitting there…” This 1964 ballad, written for Dionne Warwick and sung live in a duet by singer-songwriter Burt Bacharach and Dusty Springfield, is the perfect classic song befitting the classy items by London brand Minimalux (founded by Mark Holmes from Established and Sons). Their beautiful, polished items are just as timeless as the rest of their song selection, which ranges from film composer Ennio Morricone’s “Giocoso Gioioso” to Chopin’s “Raindrop Prelude.”
