We first featured Smith & Sinclair back in 2014 a few months before they launched their innovative Cocktail Pastilles in Harvey Nichols. Two years on the Smith & Sinclair brand continues to flourish with the recent launch of two pop –up (adult) candy stores in London and Kent. A collaboration with The Flavour Rooms London at the Sanderson* featuring Smith & Sinclair at the Purple Bar. Expect a variety of alcoholic concoctions promising to: ‘exhilarate the senses’ with Willy Wonka worthy cocktails that change in flavour and taste.
The interior designed by creative studio BeyondExact -renowned for its work with Adidas, and House of Holland, features a surreal infinity installation with never ending pastilles, interactive gallery plinths to showcase products and mirrored lighting.
Speaking about the collaboration the founder of BeyondExact Studio, James Ruth, said:
“Working with a brand like Smith & Sinclair is always a pleasure, as like us, they like to push ideas, through design and concept. To make people think, challenge and abandon the mundane.”
