Sprint buy into the Selfridges ethos

We recently completed the installation for one of the World’s most famous restaurant groups, The Ivy Collection. The new restaurant, called Brasserie of Light, with a 24ft crystal statue by British artist Damien Hirst taking centre stage, opened inside the iconic London department store, Selfridges, last month.

The Art-Deco all-day brasserie offers a menu of British classics and internationally-inspired dishes, with the kitchen helmed by Emanuel Machado.  At the centre of the restaurant is a striking artwork by artist Hirst – a 24ft crystal-encrusted statue of Pegasus, with a 30ft wingspan, galloping above diners. It is Hirst’s largest scale artwork in London to date. Designed by Martin Brudnizki, the light-filled restaurant is part of the final stages of the department store’s £300 million investment in its flagship location – for more about the restaurant, head to Selfridges.

Tony Dickinson, Sprint’s Project Director, said:

This was a very important and satisfying project to delivery for our client, within one of the world’s most famous department stores, and the challenges that go hand in hand with working in this environment, delivering to both our clients, and Selfridges’ expectations.

Justin Hardy, Head of Design at The Ivy Collection, added:

Another excellent installation delivered by Sprint on time and to specification, meeting our expectations of quality.

Pershore Food Bank

We’ve been busy collecting donations for the Pershore food Bank supported by The Trussell Trust.

The Sprint Group head office staff – assisted by the Field Sales and Technical Service teams – have joined together to give something back to the local community this Christmas.

In the catering industry, Christmas is a busy time full of festive menus, block bookings, parties and seasonal treats. But it’s impossible not to be aware that many people struggle to put food on the table when life takes an unexpected turn. Whether its illness, disability, dislocation or some tragic turn that leaves them struggling, no one should face Christmas without not just the essentials, but also something fun to brighten their day.

Sprint is proud to be a Pershore business with a national impact.

Robey Jenkins, HR Manager at Sprint Group said:

“We love our local community and hope our contribution is a small step towards making sure no one in Pershore goes hungry this Christmas.”

If you’d like to donate then head over pershore.foodbank.org.uk or call the Sprint team on 01386 555922 if you’d like to find out more about how you can join in with the brilliant initiative.
