Coca Cola Ball Exchange

Working once more with M&C Saatchi we created a structure that was erected on Potters Field Park, Tower Bridge. Coca Cola marked its sponsorship ahead of the Rugby World Cup 2015 with a ball exchange event asking Londoners to trade in their usual summer sports balls for a rugby ball. There were 1000 balls up for grabs on the day, and 1,000,000 over the whole event!

The MDF structure was cut and finished in our workshop and installed overnight, the event ran throughout the day and was dismantled that evening. The shape of the structure mimicked  a rugby ball, using perspex on the front of the counters and graphic elements along the top section. Participants were able to see the balls that had been exchanged along with a bungee cage housed inside the structure. Some lucky guests had their balls signed by the rugby stars!

Coca Cola Pop-Up

Working with M&C Saatchi we built a pop-up bar to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the Coca Cola contour bottle.

With only 2 days on site this build relied heavily on pre-fabrication in our workshop. The bar and all of it’s components were manufactured and finished in the week prior. This allowed us to rapidly install on site and concentrate on the finishing touches, which gave the bar an authentic 1920’s feel.

The bar on Soho’s Greek Street opened it’s doors for 3 days before we returned to dismantle everything.

Luckily for everyone involved, the Nicholas Alexander team were able to complete the build without breaking into much of a sweat and so didn’t need to remove our shirts and drink a ice cold coke.

Aashni + Co Wedding Show

Working with Zouch & Lamare we produced the Aashni + Co Wedding Show at the Dorchester Hotel in January. We designed a structure which created 18 separate booth areas for each designer to display their dresses. Pre-testing of the booth system in our workshop made it possible to quickly erect the main structures on the day of the build, allowing the designers to begin setting up their collections as soon as possible. We then added the finishing touches ready for the events opening the day after. After the show our team returned to the venue to take everything apart ready to be put into storage for use at a later date.
