London store Selfridges tomorrow serves up the first lunches and afternoon teas at its new restaurant, Premier. Designed by Sir Terence Conran and his consultancy CD Partnership, Premier forms part of the ongoing 70m refurbishment of the Oxford Street department store. Of his latest creation, Conran says: ‘We relied predominantly on a palette of neutral colours, partly to harmonise with the original windows, but also in deference to the fact that the restaurant is in a department store – it should be an oasis of civilised tranquillity’.
Organised by file sharing service Loop.gl, London Loop will see work by designers and other creatives displayed in public spaces all over the city.
