Tell us about the design you’ve created for HRC 2022
We are pleased to have been selected by HRC as a design partner to create a beautifully designed space for the VIP Lounge. This will provide VIP visitors with a premium and functional area to run meetings & network. We are responsible for the design and project management of the build. The VIP Lounge design concept includes different areas and aspects of different design e.g. Counters & Bars, Self-service counter, seating and Front Desk.
The berry-coloured purple is meant to be a visual representation of creativity, mystery and ambition. It is easily the most interesting colour for HRC exhibition. We used bold colours, geometric shapes and unexpected materials to bring designer pieces and personal styles into the mix. Lighted 3D wall paneling, striking statement pendant lights, rustic copper colour accents matching so well with purple hues, lighted eye-catching modern C shaped bar and designer furniture pieces.
