The Camden Town Bar

Following the success of the pop-up London Transport Canteen at London Design Festival last year, Transport for London (TfL) are collaborating this year with Camden Town Brewery for a special event in celebration of the 150th Anniversary of the Underground. Camden Town Brewery will install a micro-brewery and bar at designjunction which will be used as a platform to launch the brand new heritage collections by Fired Earth and Kirkby Design. Camden Town Brewery have already produced a range of own label beers for the London Transport Museum which have a distinct Metropolitan branding and are part celebratory range of products for the 150th Anniversary - the Metropolitan range of beers will be sold to visitors during the show. The Camden Town bar, designed by Michael Sodeau, will be created from Fired Earth’s new range of elegant tiles which are original Underground heritage station tiles manufactured in the UK with LED Lighting, suspended on Underground line coloured textile cables, by Nud Collection who will be launching an Underground range of lighting this year. Furniture will be produced and supplied by British brand Modus and upholstered in a selection of vibrant new woven textile designs by Kirkby Design, who are part of the Romo fabrics, which have been inspired by original Underground moquette seating patterns and reinterpreted into contemporary upholstery fabrics.

Transport for London (TfL) is steeped in a history of innovative design which was built on the convictions of one man, Frank Pick whose energy and vision changed the face of transport in London and London itself during the 1920s and 30's.

Pick's original vision was that good, well-managed design can change the culture of and public perception of a business.

This vision in one that TfL upholds in its commitment to new design and new design innovation both within the London transport infrastructure and TfL's brand licensing programme.
