ABDA Creative Design & Build are making their mark on this year’s Hotelympia, with an exhibition stand and the creation of the La Parade des Chefs restaurants
Running from March 5 to 8, Hotelympia is the UK’s largest foodservice and hospitality event and showcases the latest trends thinking from across the industry year after year.
Last year, the team at ABDA Design were commissioned by the show organisers, Fresh Montgomery, to create the two restaurant areas that will form as the main stage for La Parade des Chefs.
The cornerstone category of the International Salon Culinaire, the La Parade sees two teams of chefs compete by producing a three-course lunch for 100 show attendees.
The two restaurants have been named ‘The Dining Room’ and ‘The Terrace’ and have both been carefully and expertly created by the design team at ABDA Design, working with leading equipment providers to develop state-of-the-art kitchens for the team to compete in.
Senior Interior Designer at ABDA Design, Rachael Sheldon who worked on the project, said: “For ABDA Design it was crucial to try and push the design further to ensure that this year’s La Parade is unique and different from previous years. “It was important for us to create an exciting space, but at the same time it needs to have functionality for the user and the chef teams working in the space.
”The design touches developed for La Parade by the ABDA Design team all come from the initial concept and development of the two areas.”
Rachael said: “The original concept was based around the them inside and out, which has lead us to be able to play on the illusion of windows and voiles for The Dining Room, creating a soft and opulent inside theme.
“For the outside theme of The Terrace, some of the key features are the use of timber slates and Festoon lighting, creating an illusion of the outside.
”The La Parade des Chefs restaurants created by ABDA Design can be viewed throughout the four-day show and visitors can also visit the team on stand 1758 for more about the services they offer.”
