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.
