(London – date 2018) Acclaimed creative design studio, CRÈME / Jun Aizaki Architecture, based in Williamsburg, Brooklyn is bringing its particular brand of design to London this year by way of the award-winning Sleeper Bar at the Sleep + Eat event in November. Following in the wake of previous Sleeper pop-up bars by international design practices, CRÈME will be reflecting its distinct story-telling experiential design approach – its first showcase in the UK.
Embracing this year’s Sleep + Eat theme ‘Recognisable and New’ the Sleeper Bar by CRÈME furthers the practice’s explorations in traditional Chinese natural dying processes while celebrating the colour indigo in today’s context. First explored in 2017 with the CRÈME Indigo Chair (2017/Stellar Works), this year’s Sleeper Bar will showcase the intensity and beauty of an indigo-dyed wood finish as well as provide Sleep + Eat participants a vibrant place to meet and drink during the event.
Comments Jun Aizaki, owner and principal of CRÈME: "Nowhere provides a better platform than Sleep + Eat to connect with thought leaders in the European hospitality design industry. At a time that we see boutique brands building up a presence on both sides of the pond, our design for the Sleeper Bar emphasises the growing trend for connecting the recognisable and the new; the traditional and the progressive, the native and the international.”
Sleep + Eat will take place on Tuesday 20 – Wednesday 21 November 2018 in the National Hall, Olympia, London. For more information visit www.sleepandeatevent.com or register for a complimentary pass here.
