November 16th 2010 The Restaurant
The opening of the restaurant on the first day of Design Week was nothing short of a small miracle, although it felt like a huge one. During the first days after the initial storm of visitors, it became less and less crowded around five o'clock. But after around three days, the restaurant had become a 'destination' and more and more people arrived for a bite to eat, especially in the evening. But we needed to close the restaurant for a little while after Design Week. This did not lead to rows of disappointed customers finding themselves in front of closed doors. We will need to work extremely hard to make it successful. It has definitely been fun, considering the enormous numbers of happy customers the very first week.
It was quite difficult to turn the meetings I had had with Paul Smith into a tangible collaboration. When the fabrics he had personally selected arrived, we converted them into ‘tie lamps’ as quickly as possible. The lamps had hardly been hung when people suddenly started sitting in that section of the restaurant.
