The Back Room pop-up by Studio Toogood, London

October 6th, 2012 by retail design blog

British designer Faye Toogood has launched a pop-up ‘contemporary café’ for London Design Festival. According to Toogood, the space is a ‘celebration of the post-industrial era’ and seeks to explore the idea of hand-made, small-scale manufacturing. She says in this era, small collectives are reappearing and using their own skills and resources to make and sell direct.

During a meal at the café, diners gain a ‘behind the scenes’ look at the London Design Festival, heading to a back-stage type of space. Filled with industrial, almost raw materials, the café encourages guests to ‘find the beauty in the utilitarian and the austere,’ Toogood says. Up for grabs at the café is a special lunch menu – the M25 Luncheon – using local ingredients, created by food designers Arabeschi di Latte. It includes a mug of locally-brewed beer.
