The centrepiece of the annual Hotelympia Event is the Design Hub, showcasing designers work, hosting seminar programmes and providing a meeting place for visitors and exhibitors.

 

Invited by Stirling Johnson of GS magazine to create a more vibrant destination, the brief was extended to include a champagne bar for invited guests and a networking lounge, all on a tight budget. With design artefacts on loan and a sailcloth ceiling, the ice bar provided a refuge from the bright and lofty exhibition hall and this installation was reused for subsequent events.
