About Us

Established in 2008 by Edo Mapelli Mozzi, under his creative direction Banda has grown from niche London developer to burgeoning global design practice.  With over 30 projects running concurrently all over the world at any one time, the Banda team brings global capabilities and an international design language to each and every task.

The Banda signature is founded on bringing together the old and the new, adeptly mixing thoughtfully sourced antiques with statement contemporary pieces to create a coherent design narrative.

Whilst every project is unique, there are core tenets that underpin everything we do: the absolute quality and provenance of the materials we use; the skill of the craftspeople we work with and the technical benchmark of everything we put our name to.  At Banda we strive to craft interiors that are both intrinsically beautiful, faithful and relevant to their location, and faultlessly functional.

"London Penthouse: A beguiling mix of rustic look and luxury feel, this particular home has been described as “like stepping into an Old Masters painting”. Vintage oak beams accentuate the double height ceiling in the open plan living space and add a feeling of earthiness which is enhanced by the use of clay plaster on the walls.

The colour palette is owned by natural tones blending from olive to taupe, with the calming shades giving a depth that displays a human, artisanal touch.

This gentle, restful space is anchored by the strong geometric lines of the fireplace in bold Nero Marquina marble and statement lighting that provides just the right amount of juxtaposition to the softness.

The design throughout celebrates unfettered simplicity. In the kitchen we focussed heavily on natural, earthy tones with lots of warm textured wood working in harmony with the cool, grey marble surfaces. The chevron flooring gives a sharp contemporary look, but the use of multiple shades gives a scattering of warmth and variation throughout. In the living and bedroom areas natural fabrics such as linen, jute and wool work together, easing from one shade to another within their neutral palette to create a serene and welcoming sanctuary."
