Jonathan Mizzi has created Phalice – a limited edition sculpture commissioned by Elephant Family, founded by Mark Shand. Phalice will be unveiled at a private viewing of ‘Mark Shand’s Adventures and Curiosities’ at the Hauser & Wirth Gallery, Saville Row, next Thursday.  

Jonathan Mizzi was approached by Elephant Family, a charity founded by the late Mark Shand following his journeys across India with a street elephant named Tara – to create a unique phallic sculpture for Mark’s personal collection of fertility symbols. A new exhibition will be opened this week to celebrate the legacy of Shand’s journey, his foundation of the charity, as well as the various personal treasures he picked up during his travels. The show is curated by his daughter, Ayesha Shand, and features 101 fertility symbols reimagined by contemporary artists and inspired by the founder’s original collection.

Mizzi is honoured and delighted to contribute his own sculpture, Phalice, to this fascinating and prestigious collection. “This project has been a joy to work on," Jonathan said. "Aside from being given an opportunity to collaborate with the brilliant Elephant Family, I was thrilled to be able to create a unqiue sculpture that celebrates both masculinity, femininity, and – of course – the wonder of fertility. I’m also deeply honoured to be exhibiting alongside this esteemed group of artists in what will be a truly stunning exhibition”.

November couldn't have ended on a better note as our team were honoured to be named FX International Breakthrough Talent last week during the glittering awards ceremony at London’s Grosvenor House Hotel, London. We were humbled to be present amongst a VIP audience of over 1,400 of the world’s leading architects and interior designers, and to be competing against peer studios we truly admire. With past winners including huge talents such as Christopher Jenner and Dominic Harris of Cinimod Studio, we regard this accolade as an enormous honour and a professional nod to our ongoing work. 

“To make the shortlist was surprise enough, but to win really is the pinnacle of my career to date," Director Jonathan Mizzi said. "It might be my name on the door, but I really couldn’t have achieved this without the support of my team. I can’t thank them enough, and I can't wait to move into the new year with new found energy and excitement for what's yet to come".

Mizzi Studio was ushered into the autumn season with an unforgettable moment of recognition. The team picked up the 'Best Outside Design' award at the end of last month during the fabulous Restaurant & Bar Design Awards ceremony in King’s Cross, London. We were honoured to be recognised for our work on the copper kiosk – Colicci Cafe – at London’s Westfield Stratford shopping centre, and thrilled to be joined by our wonderful clients, Josephine and Rob Colicci, on the celebratory night. “We took this leap of faith together – it was a super ambitious project, and it paid off,” Rob said. “Jonathan and his team took our brief and converted it into a piece of architecture that defies industry norms. I cannot thank the team enough for their work and shared vision”.
