Larson & Jennings...53 Monmouth Street, London

Anglo-Swedish watch brand Larson and Jennings, have opened their 
first store in London’s Seven Dials.

Designed by Campaign, the store brings a touch of 
Stockholm to London in a minimal interior.

The focal point within the store is a simple plywood bench that displays luxury watches 
on Ash timber and polished brass rods. The store benefits from a customisation service 
and limited edition LJX Bronze watch only available in store.

The customer is welcome to enjoy a coffee while shopping at the Scandinavian inspired ‘FIKA’ bar.

Check it out and maybe treat yourself to an early Christmas gift!

Curious Indeed...

We recently popped along to the National Theatre to check out,
'The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time' A play based on the novel by Mark Haddon.

The play that explores themes such as 'difficulties of truthfulness' was a real eye opener and 
exploits some of our Great British acting talent- evident in Graham Buttler who stars in the lead role.

We were in awe with the fantastic set and lighting deign by Bunny Christie and Paul Constable. 
The use of modern technology on stage really elevates the performance while the linear staging is 
playful and intelligent- constantly adapting as the scenes progressed.

Our recommendation could not come more highly.

It may be the Friday feeling, but we are still buzzing from last weeks win at the annual 
'Retail Week Interior Awards' where we picked up not one but two gongs for:

Best Pop Up/ VM Solution Of The Year

UK Retail Interior Of The Year

Both for our project 'Fragrance Lab' in collaboration with The Future Laboratory and Selfridges.

The ideology behind the Fragrance Lab was to create a unique personalised
fragrance centred around a series of tactile sensory based experiences all designed to
heighten the senses and push the boundaries of retail design.

Our creative director Philip Handford along with Kirsty Minns of the
Future Laboratory collected both awards on stage at last weeks ceremony.

Visit to the Barbican...

Last week we bit the bullet and joined the crowds at
The Barbican to see 'Digital Revolution'.

More and more our clients want to integrate digital technology into physical space, 
so the visit to 'Digital Revolution' has opened our eyes to the multiple opportunities 
available to us designers that go beyond a simple screen or iPad.

Overall the exhibition was a great immersive and multi sensory experience 
but here are a few things that stuck out for us.

'Assemblance' by Umbrellium

Atmospheric 3D interactive lasers

'Wishing Wall' by Vavara & Mars
Speak your thought and watch watch them turn into digital butterflies

'Dronestagram' by James Bridle

Mini-Mart on Mount Street

Luxury British Accessories designer Anya Hindmarch 
has opened a pop up shop on London's Mount Street.


The spaces take influence from the designers Autumn/ Winter 2014 collection 'Mini-Mart',
which sees everyday objects transformed into luxury leather goods. 

The collection uses iconic graphics from the likes of Frosties, Cornflakes, Daz, and Ariel 
to inspire a range of box clutches, tote bags and document wallets. 

The temporary interior plays with the commercial nature of the product and features 
bold graphics, colour block rack shelving, neon highlights and checker board floor.



If the product alone doesn't persuade you to visit, we should mention that they are 
serving 99p ice-creams through the duration of summer!

The designer was not alone in channeling the branding trend, both Chanel and Moschino's 
Autumn/ Winter 2014 shows referenced everyday recognisable imagery. 
Maybe this will inspire us to do more with out empty cereal boxes in future!
