A new members’ club aimed at people in the creative industries opens in London’s West End on Monday, with interiors and branding by owner Chris Manoe and interior designer Dominic Elvin.
INC Space occupies a five-storey, 840m2 building on Grape Street, WC2. It features a photographic studio, rehearsal studio, product launch and gallery spaces, a delegate centre for up to 70 people, a gym and a private members’ lounge.
Manoe appointed Elvin in November to realise his vision of a white, minimalist space inspired by science fiction films. Elvin, who designed the Cyberdog fashion and accessories stores, has installed Wrap3 technology to allow visiting companies to brand the spaces using projections.
The members’ lounge features white vinyl bean-bags, and detailing includes blue LEDs and reclaimed heating elements from the building re-employed as coffee tables.
The club is particularly aimed at performing artists and television, film and visual arts professionals. Membership costs £1000 a year.
INC Space will also include offices for Manoe’s artist representation and production company International Collective.
