Welcome to the Phab* People blog. An eclectic collection of inspirations, thoughts, influences and news from the design world in general and from the Hoxton, Shoreditch and Brick Lane area of London.

When we first moved to the area there was just one pub that any discerning local would go to, The Bricklayers Arms on Charlotte Street. Nowadays, it seems a new drinking establishment opens every day. The Hoxton Pony on Curtain Road is the latest temptation employing a sleek and shiny fit out to attract the (not so) locals in. The reason I mention it here is a couple of days ago two glamorous envoys from said bar knocked on our studio door bearing gifts. The rather large box contained a simple selection of scones and jam. Someone less kind than I commented that the bites were as stale as the bar's decor. However, I am not one to look a gift horse in the mouth.
