Kit and Caboodle are proud to partner with London Design Festival, offering our most recent colourful activations to the event. Featuring Colourpoint and Principal Pavilion, don't miss the opportunity to experience them as part of the festivals highlights. This year, London Design Festival want to put the spotlight on the brilliance of London’s design scene at a time when it needs to be promoted more than ever. More than ever, we want to stage a Festival that puts a spotlight on the brilliance of the design community in London and the UK.
City Point, the 36 storey landmark tower in the City of London, is hosting an innovative installation as part of the creative partnership between developers Brookfield and our events agency.
The colourful installations at Colour Point offer a sheltered as well as sunny spot to take lunch, read a good book during lunch break, or simply to watch the world go by at pavement level, after enjoying the panoramic views from the tower.
Perspex-coloured acrylic frames have been used to create a stained glass effect, stretched over a brightly coloured geometric astro-turf flooring design.
The spaces offer the perfect spot to sample takeaway food or drinks from nearby eateries and soak up some summer sun. Just don’t feed the big Hedge Bear, a humorous touch and perfect for selfies.
Sited at the foot of the City Point Tower, the installation will provide a splash of colour for workers, retail outlet clients and the commercial residents of the iconic building including Simmons & Simmons, SquarePoint Capital, Flextrade, BAM Construct, Seyfarth Shaw, United Trust Bank, Winston and Strawn Property, Willkie Farr and Gallagher, Cravath Swaine & Moore, Simpson Thacher & Bartlett, Spaces, Duane Morris, Toppan Merrill and naturally the home team at Brookfield Properties.
If you’re looking for some added fun during the London Design Festival you can dance into the morning with Secret Sunrise on 16th September. Visit www.citypoint.co.uk to secure your spot.
Located in the “unsquare mile” where the City meets Shoreditch, there’s nothing square about the new geometrically-inspired Principal Pavilions’ installation.
Summertime has returned to the City post-lockdown, in a blaze of colour. The pop-up summer pavilion structures offer a vibrant, space to chill out, cleverly positioned at a suitably safe social distance.
Perspex-coloured acrylic frames have been used to create a stained-glass effect, stretched over a brightly coloured geometric astro-turf flooring design.
The spaces offer the perfect spot to sample takeaway food or drinks from nearby eateries and soak up the sun … or dash for shelter out of the summer storms that have been a hallmark of Summer 2020.
With Amazon having relocated their HQ to Principal Place/Tower in 2019, there’s no shortage of footfall from nearby offices.
We created and installed the installation for our regular client, Brookfield, the developers. Easily accessible and free for all, the colourful design pays homage to the medieval French root of the word “pavilion” meaning the spread of a butterfly’s wings, and inspired by Gaudi’s strange geometric shapes.
Tanya Clark, CEO of Kit & Caboodle, says “Intelligent urban placemaking can impact favourably on the wellbeing of city residents, whether workers or dwellers. Our creative team looks to support developers like Brookfield to bring colour and fun back to the streets of our cities.”
