Jewellery designer Stephen Webster MBE features in the latest film showcasing InterContinental Madrid’s Insider Experience, in partnership with the Sorolla Foundation.
Conveyed through a short film, viewers catch a glimpse of the hotel’s Insider Experience through the eyes of the renowned designer. In conversation with Blanca Pons-Sorolla, the great-granddaughter of celebrated painter, Joaquín Sorolla, Webster is given a personal insight into the life and works of the 19thand 20th Century impressionist artist, set against a backdrop of some key artworks and artifacts in his former home.
Exploring Madrid’s artistic heritage, Webster talks of his own creativity and shared love for beautiful landscapes – the inspiration behind an intricate drawing he has created for display at InterContinental Madrid.
“It’s those experiences that allow you to scratch beneath the surface of the city that inspire creativity and make travel really special,” he says. “When I learn about amazing people, or see incredible landscapes, it provides inspiration for my design sketches and jewellery.”
