Conran interior design’s extra-curricular activities…

A little after-school activity report today from Nathan Zaver, one of our interior designers from our Conran & Partners  office down in Brighton.

We’re a busy lot on the south coast it has to be said, designing secret houses, saving lidos and giving old icons a new lease of life so it comes as no surprise that we’ve got our fingers in a theatrical pie this time!

Over the last few months I have been collaborating with Tristan Sharpe of Dream Think Speak on the Interior Design of the their next production which will be their working of William Shakespeare’s Hamlet.

It’s been really good fun working on this, especially as it’s a new experience designing set’s for a complex imagining.

I’ve really enjoyed working on it and can’t wait to see it built and to see the production!

THE REST IS SILENCE interweaves performance and film to create a vigorous new interpretation that explores the messy underbelly of Shakespeare’s great play. 

 

Don’t just take his word for it catch ‘The Rest is Silence’ at one of the performances below…

Conran: The secrets of retail design

Nathan Zaver, Senior Designer from Conran & Partners lets us in on a few little secrets…

Last Thursday I gave a talk with Paul Zara about our retail work to the In-store Marketing Conference at the University of Westminster in Regent Street.

It’s London’s only seminar dedicated entirely to the shopper marketing and communications, so it was a good opportunity to show the work we’ve done for companies like GAP, Uniqlo and Barclays and our recent project for Coffee Republic.

As you can see in the ad below, we were unlocking ‘the secrets behind some of retailing’s most alluring in-store environments’. Read below to find out more…

A few of our secrets…..:

  • Be flexible! Listen to your client and understand their design and commercial needs
  • Good design can make you more money!
  • High Street retail design can be innovate and creative without costing the earth
  • We understand retail from a unique perspective as our group runs a retail business
  • A brand can change its value through design
