Michael Grubb Studio is delighted to announce that we have been appointed by the London Borough of Tower Hamlets to provide permanent festive lighting for London’s iconic Brick Lane.
A microcosm of London’s shifting ethnic patterns, the area around Brick Lane in East London was once associated with poor slums and the scene of the crime for the Jack the Ripper murders. Whilst the notorious pub Ten Bells still stands, the area itself is now extremely popular with London’s edgy and artistic crowd, featuring galleries, restaurants, markets and festivals throughout the year.
The Old Truman Brewery at 91 Brick Lane houses a vibrant market where up-and-coming designers set up shop every Sunday selling a unique variety of clothes, handbags and jewellery. There are also vintage clothing stores and chic boutiques dotted around the area.
As a hub of London’s Bangladeshi community, Brick Lane has always been famed for its many authentic curry restaurants. It now also has a reputation for its warehouse art exhibitions and trendy clubs and bars.
Michael Grubb Studio will be working in conjunction with the Brick Lane Regeneration Partnership (BLRP) which represents residents, community groups along with business market traders and asset owners. We will also be liaising with Council officers and the Street Lighting Team.
More information will be available shortly.
