Gong Go From Strength to Strength
Lighting brand Gong has opened up a brand new pop-up shop on Kings Road London where you can experience their exquisite lighting pieces up close. Open 7 days a week from 11am-6pm you can view a stunning selection of floor, table and wall lamps, ceiling lights and dedicated collections in everything from brass and silk to glass and linen. Gong was founded by Jo Plismy, who is passionate about timeless design combined with the finest quality materials and expert artisan craftsmanship.
“Our focus is on style with atmosphere,” explains Jo. “It all started when I visited London in my mid-twenties. I grew up in Belgium in a home full of 20th century furniture, surrounded by Asian and African art dealers. This is where my passion for eclectic and timeless objects began and I would often be found browsing for hours in markets at the weekends. Opening my interiors boutique on Portobello Road in 1999 seemed like a natural progression and when a second Gong boutique opened on Fulham Road a few years later, I began to design my own lighting. The popularity of those creations inspired me to do more and so I turned my attention exclusively to lighting design.”
Gong is a true family business and has grown substantially to become a high-end supplier to domestic and residential projects as well as wholesale; supplying shops, interior designers, architects, hotels and restaurants all around the world.
