An evening of Great British design

Over seventy guests joined us at Keybridge to celebrate the best of Great British design. Read more below.

 

The event, held in association with London Design Festival was a great success. Kate Moore, Director at Darling Associates and Chris Dezille, Founder of Honky, kicked things off with a insightful and thought provoking workshop on bringing the best of Great British design into your home. This was followed by Alfredo Caraballo, Partner at Allies and Morrison - our award winning architects at Keybridge. Alfredo charted the evolution of Great British architecture and what it takes to create a memorable building for London. Lastly, Dan Sayers, Technical Director at legendary British automotive designers, Aston Martin Racing brought the V8 Vantage GTE Challenger to showcase and shared the secrets as to what what lies behind the design of their racing cars.

Prosecco and canapes were served throughout the evening courtesy of local restaurant Brunswick House. Continuing the theme of all things British, each canape was made using fresh, organic produce from chef Jackson Boxer’s family farm in West Sussex, on the South Downs.

On departure guests were presented with gift bags including:

  • Aston Martin Racing bags, diaries and business card holders
  • Darling Associates postcards and pencils, rulers and USBs
  • Honky candles, matches and postcards
  • Mount Anvil portfolio and Vauxhall local area guides and Keybridge USBs
