02.10.17 / ADAM GROOMING ATELIER / Eastcheap, London

Work in progress….We’ve been working with the exciting start up ADAM Grooming Atelier for the last few weeks by project managing their second store in Eastcheap, London.  Tested by David himself at Canary Wharf, where you’ll find the first Atelier,
the service is second to none; they describe themselves as offering a timeless barbering experience with expert barbers in a great ambience.

The geometric inspired atelier environment is distinctive and crafted with its oak screened barber booths and hexagonal ceiling detail, also seen in the branding. With a complementary Turkish coffee whilst you are left to the artful hands of the barbers, shows the attention to detail that makes this experience a memorable one.  We are looking forward to this one opening.

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. Read more… https://www.kingscross.co.uk/skip-garden

24.05.16 / DESIGN TAXI / Crayola turns kids drawings into toys

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’.

Screen Shot 2016-05-24 at 22.13.23

All you need to do is upload a picture of the drawing to their website. Brilliant really.

04.02.15 / DE ZEEN / Aesop / Cosa Magenta, Milan / by DimoreStudio
This caught my eye while reading through De Zeen today. A fantastic use of the colour teal with glazed tiles and green fixtures, contrasting with pale yellow and pink details.

19.01.15 / TOP DRAWER / London Olympia
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.comScreen Shot 2016-01-21 at 11.55.57Screen Shot 2016-01-21 at 11.55.42Screen Shot 2016-01-21 at 11.56.23

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.comJamjar lights TD.png
