Last week Susanna was invited to speak at the latest installation of Future Design Friday's. The theme of the night was 'Appetite for more – Does beautiful cutlery equal market cut-through? The discussion centred around the role of graphic and interior design and architecture in creating and developing unique and effective permanent and temporary hospitality spaces. Other speakers included Dom Roberts from Mash Design, Graham Charbonneau and Dave Bickmore from Studio Gram and Keith Dougal from Woods Bagot. It was an inspiring night filled with talk of our two favourite topics, food and design!
Late last year we were approached by a client looking for 'something' to represent their company's core values. These were DI – Deliberate Outcomes, RP – Resilient Partnerships, TA – Tailored Approach, and DO – Deliberate Outcomes. There was no limit to what form this ‘thing’ might take except that it needed to be light enough to carry to the bar down the road, or to bring along to a work function. From this exciting brief DIRPTADO was born. Dirptado is made up of four solid timber 'mouth' pieces, each representing a core value and two different copper 'heads' which speak of partnerships and give DIRPTADO a personality of his own. The final piece was handcrafted by the Jam factory and has been embraced wholly by the client and his staff.
