13.04.17 / NEW MAPLE & KING’S STORE OPENS / Pancras Square, London
Since August last year we have been working with the very inspiring and forward-thinking food brand Maple & Co. Adria Wu, Founder and Chef started out with the first store/restaurant on Mortimer Street, Fitzrovia – Maple & Fitz. Next, a collaboration with The College of Naturopathic Medicine (CNM) where Maple & CNM can be found.
Just last week the latest store at No. 3 Pancras Square opened. We are proud to have worked closely with Adria in designing the new restaurant interior, project managing the build, and designing the environment graphics and packaging.

09.12.16 / EXPLORING KING’S CROSS / The Skip Garden & Kitchen / King’s Cross, London
After a meeting, this morning was spent walking around and seeing the exciting developments at King’s Cross. Found, hidden within the tall and geometric structures of office blocks, housing and retail units is the Skip Garden & Kitchen. It was so strange to find such a treasure of a place, so rustic, organic and unstructured – a little oasis within the confines of the towering and noisy building works. What a brilliant idea.

This is genius, although when I think of some of my kids drawings I do wonder how lovable they would turn out to be! Crayola has launched Crayola Imaginables which turns your child’s drawings into ‘lovable stuffed toys and Plushies’.
All you need to do is upload a picture of the drawing to their website. Brilliant really.

This week I caught the last day of Top Drawer at Olympia. Here are some of my top picks:
Marta Bordes / Elastic lights /
Ceramic lights made with geometric components linked by bright elastic cords. I love the contrast between the neons and neutrals; the vibrancy and playfulness of the combined materials adds real character. Marta-bordes.com
Jam Jar lights / bespoke lighting
A clever way to bring a unique and personalised feel to lighting design. Design your own from choosing everything from the ceiling rose, to the cord, pedant and bulb type. jamjarlights.com
