Custom-made bars

For permanent install or as a pop-up at an event or exhibition. We’ve made bars for London Coffee Week, Wilderness Festival and various pop-up bars and spaces.

If you’ve had a coffee or a wine at an event, you might have been leaning on one of our custom built bars!


We can create scenes and new worlds to simple backdrops for photo shoots, videos, set and stage, exhibitions, festivals and events.

We’ve built sets for TEDxBrighton, Brighton Ballet School, Interior Design Masters, the Repair Shop, The Great Escape Festival and more!

Exhibition stands

Custom built, custom fit stands that will make passers-by stop and say hello.

We’re regulars at many of the big events at Birmingham NEC, ExCel, Business Design Centre, Brighton Dome,
