Fishy business at Watatsumi


Watatsumi is the first London location for Umi Sushi, the Dubai-based high-end sushi operator. Shoal was selected to take centre stage in this pioneering new venue at 7 Northumberland Avenue, just off Trafalgar Square. Working with Elektra Lighting and Sidell Gibson Architects, this 1.2m diameter Shoal of clear glazed fine bone china fish perfectly balances the contemporary cuisine of Watatsumi with the opulent original features of the restaurant interior, and is set to be an iconic addition to subsequent restaurants.


Delmatic’s Stephen Woodnutt is on the up


Delmatic’s Stephen Woodnutt has completed the gruelling Step Change Challenge in aid of the NSPCC, and the Tower 42 Vertical Rush in aid of Shelter. The Step Change Challenge is held at 30 St Mary Axe (the ‘Gherkin’) in the City of London, where competitors run up 1,037 steps through the building’s 38 floors to raise money for the NSPCC. Stephen really ‘stepped up’ the pace, completing the ascent in just six minutes and 15 seconds and coming 15th out of 443 competitors. Going several steps further, Stephen has also completed the Tower 42 Vertical Rush to raise money for Shelter – climbing 920 steps over 42 floors. Stephen gave another impressive performance, completing the course in 7 minutes and 22 seconds.

New premises for Fluorel


Fluorel Lighting has moved to new premises just outside London. The move will provide the new base for the company to service ever-increasing demand for energy efficient fluorescent lighting. The business has expanded over the years and had ended up occupying a number of separate premises to cope. The new premises enable all the operations, including design and manufacturing, to be bought under a single roof, which will help reduce costs through work efficiency and improve customer service.


BDP celebrates 50 years


BDP is celebrating its 50th anniversary with a series of events throughout the year. 61/11 Continuous Collective: BDP at 50 will see a series of exhibitions in London at RIBA from 23 May to 24 June and in Manchester from 6 October – 5 November. The exhibition traces the ethos and work of the practice from its founding in 1961 as part of the emerging cultural change of the North West of England to the present day international design firm. The 61/11 Continuous Collective book, written by Hugh Pearman with contributions from Owen Hatherley and Lee Mallett, will be launched together with a film by Camilla Robinson, entitled 5 Cities, 5 Places, One Day. BDP has also launched Cycle for Jo where cyclists from all BDP studios will ride in relay teams between each studio to raise money for charity. Following the tragic death of Bristol studio based landscape architect, Jo Yeates last Christmas, BDP is dedicating this sponsored cycle tour as a way of paying tribute to her.
