Origins – Somerset House

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]With the launch of the exhibition ‘Mushrooms; The Art, design and Future of Fungi’ at Somerset House, Origins collaborated with their product, ‘Mega Mushroom’ for a pop-up shop and evening event.   Being given an eco conscious brief by the creative team at Origins, we at Hello Flamingo assembled and created three dimensional mushrooms in an array of recyclable materials. Our production team handmade multiple mushrooms, sculpted from paper and card then arranged and layered these to create an enticing display ready for the upcoming exhibition at Somerset house. The mushrooms were installed against a moss wall to showcase the products with giant hanging mushrooms chandeliers in the Somerset House gift shop. An evening event showcasing Origins products in the Spring Restaurant featured two giant archways filled with three dimensional mushrooms creating walkways into the venue. Tiny mushrooms were handmade to dress the tables in the venue. What a fab project to work on! x[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]...

Laura Ashley – AW16

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] Hello Flamingo were asked to transform the Laura Ashley Head Office in Fulham this week for their AW16 press event in June 2016. [/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height="25px"][vc_column_text] The brief was to transform 5 rooms for their Home and Fashion ranges. The fashion room took inspiration from a design/textile studio with draped walls, floating clothes rails, free standing white PVC panels and a huge ‘mannequin army’ triangular plinth. The Home room was inspired by an art exhibition space with draped walls, free standing panels at 2.8m H which created room dividers which had panels with wallpapers and paint colour for the coming season. Light trays were built to suspend Laura Ashley lighting. The market rooms were beautifully dressed and lit with all the new season products. The hallway was filled with real birch trees to create an Autumnal walkway. [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]...

White Stuff – AW16

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] Hello Flamingo were so excited to work with the creative team at White Stuff for their AW16 press event, held in the Emin Suite at 34, an exclusive restaurant in London’s Mayfair. [/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height="25px"][vc_column_text] Hello Flamingo were presented with moodboards by the client for the event, which included weather imagery, such as rain clouds and lightning. The brief was to recreate the weather as sculptures and create an art installation – which was very fitting, as the event was held in a room named after artist Tracey Emin. The bespoke props (up to 700mm wide) were sculpted by the Hello Flamingo team from chicken wire and sprayed to match the season’s colour palette. These were then attached to bases and used as a table centre, which was the focal point of the room. We loved the final effect, it was so eye-catching! [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]...
