Clerkenwell Design Week

May 2014

Farmiloe Building, EC1 London

The Brief

Clerkenwell Design Week attracts talent from across the globe and is one of the highest profile occasions in London’s design calendar.

We were enlisted to create a visually striking café / bar at the heart of the event, serving exceptional drinks and food to the thousands of visitors and exhibitors who visited the Design Factory.

Our offer needed to match the quality of design and production on display. As well as great produce, it was essential our set up and service were in line with the show’s creative approach.

Our Response

Working together with the CDW team, we created a bespoke bar to accommodate food, draft beer and the coffee service. Our delivery team oversaw all elements of a two day on-site build, and managed supplier communication, taking pressure off the busy Design Week team.

We collaborated with local producers to source a top quality menu, and put together a team to work the event comprising some of the best people in the café industry. In the days before the show opened, we researched exhibitors and gained a further insight into the history of CDW to make sure we were briefed up to the hilt.

The bar was a huge success and for four days we were relentlessly busy from dawn ‘til dusk. Sales were huge, queues were short and, most importantly, customers were delighted.
