Metropolitan design values get down in Croydon this week, with the opening of a 700m2 members-only music and pool club, Loop. The bar features interiors by Dtwo Design. A duo comprising Dominic Taylor and David Knight, the group has also created bespoke furniture and fittings for the venue, including black-felted pool tables with thin black Perspex lights. ‘It’s a sexy look that’s dark and mysterious and is based on the idea of sexual meetings and encounters,’ explains Taylor. Enfabula has created the branding, including the website www.loopclubs.co.uk, and the plan is to develop Loop into a club brand focusing on ‘user experience’, says Enfabula director Taragh Bissett.
