BROWN THOMAS DUBLIN
YEAR OF THE DOG
In 2016, Brown Thomas commissioned Rob to design the shop frontage and interior of its flagship store on Grafton Street, Dublin, to celebrate the Chinese New Year. The iconic luxury retailer has been an integral part of Ireland’s retail history since it was established in Dublin in 1849.
Depicting the Chinese Zodiac, the artwork adorned the windows and merchandising areas of the landmark store. Brown Thomas gifted Rob’s original piece to the Chinese Embassy in Dublin, where it now hangs on the wall in the ambassador’s office.
