Beatles to Bowie, the 60’s exposed. National Portrait Gallery, October 2009 – January 2010
Huge repeat patterns in an art nouveau style in bright acidic colours were the classic design of the time.We created a false wall, which acted as a backdrop to the bar, juxtaposed with a black and white geometric bar front.Lava lamps were placed on the reception desks and canapés and cocktails were psychedelic!
Lord Sugar, September 2010
Converting an austere boardroom into a relaxed space for dinner is a common brief for us. Even Lord Sugar had difficulties getting too serious in this room with the chic black and hot pinks.
LGBT (Lesbians, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender), July 2010
Fabulously colour co-ordinated in turquoise blue and canary yellow. Blue glitter carpet on arrival, turquoise linen and all glamed up with crystal trees on the bar.
Irving Penn Portraits & Indian Portrait 1560-1860, National Portrait Gallery, May-June 2010
We took the brilliant colours of the exhibition and reflected them in the evening reception with bright pink linen and piercing blue canape trays and rich reds cocktails. Like a Bollywood movie, all very chaotic whilst still remaining to be aesthetically pleasing.
Gay Icons, National Portrait Gallery, July 2009
With such strong colours mixed into one event, it could easily get very messy. We tamed a palette of bright colours and textures of lime greens, fuchsia pinks, turquoise flock and silver, just some of the colours associated with the exhibition.
Pratham Summer Fundraiser, June 2009
Showing who the benefactors are from any charity fundraiser, is always top priority. Pratham aims to improve the reading and basic arithmetic skills of the children in India. Photos of the children reading their new books were encased within high tables. With hand passed canapes inside and an authentic Indian street food style bbq outside, the guests truly felt like they were being treated to an Indian Summer Party!
Vanity Fair, National Portrait Gallery, 2008
Film strip style projections were screened across the reception wall whilst Greta Garbo cocktails were served at a pure white bar.
