London – Brompton Design District has commissioned notable design alumni to create cocktails that celebrate its 10th anniversary.
Cultural institutions, independent retailers, international brands and restaurants all make up the London Design Festival’s oldest design neighbourhood, Brompton Design District.
In celebration of its 10th anniversary the design partnership has asked some of its most notable members to conjure up a real or conceptual cocktail creation. The project was conceived in the vein of Fillipo Marinetti’s 1932 Futurist Cookbook, which provided theoretical recipes that worked as an artistic manifesto. Brompton’s founders will compile the cocktail recipes alongside photographs into a commemorative book.
The project was conceived to celebrate Brompton’s accomplishments as a hub of creativity. ‘Looking back over 10 years, the Brompton programme has always been about creating a space for experimentation and we have been fortunate in working with some extraordinarily talented and innovative designers,’ says curator Jane Withers.
London Design Festival runs on 17–25 September 2016. For a guide on top things to see, read our London Design Festival 2016 preview and look out for live reporting throughout the week.
