You weren't kidding when you were telling me that pop-up stores/events/restaurants/even hairdressers are all the rage in London these days! Saw this blog write-up via Facebook – some pop-up antics by our very own client, Complicité. As described in the post: "the renowned theatre company staged a pop-up afternoon tea event with dream-like qualities, transforming a communal lounge in over-55′s centre Dora House (St. John’s Wood, London), into a spotless, 1940′s-esque tea-room. Flanked by paisley wallpaper, sweeping net curtains and live classical music, an impeccably styled cast of waiting staff and actors played out themes of love, regret and distant memories as customers looked on in disbelief over a pot of Earl Grey." Apparently the stories were based on the memories of the Dora House residents, and what afternoon tea meant to them. With video projections onto menus, plates of sugar dissolving to reveal secret maps, tiny eclairs – and of course, crustless sandwiches – sounds like Complicité was in their usual fine form. Still so happy that we got a chance to work with such a brilliant group!
