Ten consultancies have been invited to pitch for the interiors of The Cobden Club, London’s latest members club.
The groups have been asked to come up with ideas for colour schemes, bars, bathrooms and lighting for the drinking and dining establishment.
The participants are: Mathew Godley in partnership with Justin Meath-Baker; Timorous Beasties in Glasgow; Alex Michaelis; Adjaye & Russell; Sarah Tideswell; D d-A Design in Brighton; Ben Kelly; Stephen Calloway; and Oriel Harwood.
The identities of two other shortlisted designers who entered independently from their employers are not being disclosed.
One designer will be selected and the nine runners up in the creative pitch will get two five-year club memberships, says Cobden Club director Ivo Hesmondalgh.
