Sense of Space & ArtBar
05.04.18 – 18.05.18
Our multi-sensory pop up installation at Broadgate’s Exchange Square saw spring burst into full bloom with four different rooms, each perfectly designed to take its visitors on an engaging journey through interactive artworks, sights, smells and sounds. If this wasn’t enough, our accompanying pop-up (and aptly named) ArtBar was the icing on the cake, serving a range of freshly made food, drinks and snacks to any avid art fans who happened to swing our way.
With features on TimeOut and The Evening Standard to name a few, Sense of Space and ArtBar were the perfect team to welcome in the warmer weather, drawing crowds of people from across London who wished to get in on this miniature inner-city paradise.
ArtBar was a dream combination of ethicality and creativity. With fresh food by Brindisa and cakes delivered daily by local bakers, we worked with several charitable brands such as Brewgooder Clean Water Lager, Charitea and Lemonaid, who donate 100% of their profits to clean water projects around the globe and help fund a number of charitable projects and organisations, respectively. Disposable plastic was off the menu. With the help of Vegware our cutlery, coffee cups, straws and even wine glasses were compostable, with everything else being sustainable or reusable – guilt free grazing!
Now for Sense of Space. With some help from the team at Bacchus, SoS offered a welcome break from the corporate chaos. visitors were greeted by the structure itself, a reflective silver cube swathed in the colourfully geometric patterns of graphic artist, Supermundane. Then came The Doodle Room, a monochrome maze of crazy drawings designed by Mr Doodle himself, who left no stone undrawn. The Infinity Garden, a beautifully tranquil forest with mirrored walls and colour changing cherry blossoms was the perfect chance to snap a quick selfie or simply enjoy the calming sounds and smells of a Japanese garden. This was followed the The Motion Box. With 4 different soundtracks to move to, visitors could interact with a digitised version of themselves, seeing their movements reflected in real time as swirling patterns of colour and light. Before re-entering into the hustle and bustle of busy London life, we offered one last chance to wind down in The Zen Studio. Picture this: a soft, lavender scented room filled with a giant, baby pink bean bag…do we need to say anything more?
