The Big Be In
Client / Be.in Group 2013
We have been working on a mildly secret and very absorbing project for the past six months or so. This is for the appropriately named Be.in Group who plan to open several bars across the great cities of Britain over the next few years.
For us as a design practice, being involved in a bar/restaurant project has represented a massive opportunity for us to take a number of ideas from our rather varied design bookshelf (metaphorically speaking) and make them real. We have been integrally involved in setting out a vision of applied sustainability in design and business ethos.
Our vision for what the be.in bars will be is deeply involved in the design based 'making culture'. We have designed, prototyped, and fabricated all the furniture in the venue with our developing skills in CNC operating. Beautiful (and comfortable!) chairs, vertical garden modules (made of 98% post-consumer recycled plastics), tables, artworks, lighting schemes, and many other aspects have all fallen into our remit.
We are very much looking forward to this fantastic venue opening up in September.
