Clippings collaborates with The Prince Akatoki in London

Clippings is an online marketplace that streamlines the process of furniture and product procurement, delivery and installation for architects and interior designers.

The digital platform recently collaborated with B3 Designers – who were up against tight timescales at The Prince Akatoki in London – to find furniture from a catalogue of luxury brands, source alternatives, optimise lead times and reduce costs.

To ensure a smooth installation phase, given that the hotel continued operating throughout, the designers used Clippings’ consolidation service to store items off-site and organise the delivery of furniture as required.

Set on Marylebone’s Great Cumberland Place, a stone’s throw from Marble Arch, The Prince Akatoki marks the first property beyond the borders of its native Japan for Prince Hotels & Resorts.

The 82-key project is billed as a fusion of Eastern and Western hospitality, culture, service and design; a slice of Japanese luxury occupying a row of seven quintessentially London townhouses.
