We're excited to announce our Poppies of Camden design has been shortlisted in the inaugural Casual Dining Interior Design Awards. The London fish and chip restaurant, opened in March 2013, is up for Best Designed Independent Restaurant.
This isn't the first time Poppies has caught the attention of industry leaders. The Camden restaurant's vintage design was shortlisted in the SBID international design awards last year, meanwhile, Poppies was crowned the UK's best independent fish and chip restaurant just last month (National Fish and Chip Awards).
Creative Director, Evros Agathou, said: "Casual dining is a fast growing industry and design plays a huge part in its success. With fantastic unpretentious food on offer, we designers work hard to create just the right laid-back quality of experience by thinking through every detail. We're delighted to reflect the excellent Poppies food offering in our design and add another shortlist to the Poppies brand."
On the design itself he added: "Our vintage restaurant design for Poppies of Camden is all about enjoyment and comfort. Poppies sources from some of the finest sustainable suppliers. We matched that with quality traditional fixtures and fittings from floor to ceiling. From the 40s jukebox to the Thomas Crapper toilets, every detail of eating out at Poppies is an experience in itself."
The winners will be decided at the Casual Dining Awards Show on 26 February. The judging panel is chaired by leading design commentator David Worthington, chairman of Designersblock and H&M Group. He’ll be joined by Afroditi Krassa, founder of Afroditi Krassa Design, Theo Williams, creative director of Designed and Sourced, and Simon Kincaid, associate director of Conran and Partners.
The Casual Dining Show takes place on 26-27 February at the Business Design Centre London. According to the event’s organiser, Diversified Communications UK, the awards present a fantastic opportunity to highlight the creativity of innovative operators and designers, and to celebrate the continuing success of the UK’s £6.7bn casual dining market.
We're looking forward to it.
