To celebrate the European launch of the Dodie Thayer for Tory Burch Lettuce Ware collection, we teamed up with Wallpaper* magazine and asked London artist Bethan Laura Wood to create an art installation inspired by the tabletop items. And last night, in the midst of Salone del Mobile, we finally unveiled the work. Here’s your first glimpse at Wood’s creation above, which is currently in the windows of our new Milan flagship on Via Della Spiga 7 — where the event took place — and will travel to our boutiques in Munich and London.

The hand-painted installation, titled Lettuce Entertain You, features a nearly five-foot-tall sculpture in the shape of a massive canapé and six smaller versions; all incorporate plates from the lettuce ware collection into the design. So how exactly did Wood come up with the fantastical idea to do oversized canapés with a starter inspiration point in Tory Burch and Dodie Thayer? Read our interview with the artist here.
