As we’ve come to expect, last night’s Design Dinner was another great get-together. The format of the bi-monthly event is simple: a small audience of senior design industry figures, great food, a drink or two and (crucially) a fascinating speaker. In the past, we’ve seen talks given by stand-up comedians, puppeteers, bloggers and filmmakers.
Taking the stage last night was Ben Leask, founder of Ben’s House, a lovely little store near Warren Street in London. Ben described his early life as the son of a shopkeeper in Blackheath, his experience in retail around the world and the ethos behind his store. Ben puts this ethos best on his own website: "Everything in my little store is Cured, Created, Crafted in London Town."
Next time we're in Fitzrovia, we’ll definitely be dropping in for a London brew.
