Dining out on the success of its London Design Festival debut last year, Wrong for Hay will not only launch new lighting pieces in its St James’ showroom, but will also host a pop-up restaurant, ’Design & Dine’, with talented Finnish chef Antto Melasniemi. Wallpaper* entertaining director Melina Keays and former interiors director Benjamin Kempton have been enlisted to curate the space, conceiving unexpected ways of engaging with the brand’s collection. Meanwhile, Hay and Wrong for Hay will also be popping up at Selfridges with a minimarket of objects from their collections.
13 - 20 September; 34 Queen Anne’s Gate, SW1H 9AB
