Many variations of this neighbourhood shop exist around the globe. Whether called bodega (Spain), épiceries (France) or an off-license (UK, Ireland, New Zealand) each of these convenience stores is a unique vessel shaped by the local demographics, cityscape and culture. The team will utilise this truly globally recognised and yet locally influenced format.
By its nature Help Yourself is shaped by the identities of the chefs and designers that bring the project to life in combination with the temporary microcosm of One Design Week in Plovdiv. The store will offer delicious food produce to pick from alongside other curiosities that tell the story of the ever more global nature of our culinary identities.
A two month long cultural and gastronomic research trip to the Thai capital.
Conceived by Alan Yau with the first branch opening on Soho's Wardour Street in 1999, Busaba Eathai is a modern Thai eatery.
Busaba is a Thai flower. Eathai is a fusion of the words eat and Thai. Differing from formal dining establishments, Eathai represents a Thai casual dining venue, offering a one-course dining experience devised to feed you with minimal fuss.
Fifteen years on, Busaba still offers a much coveted, flavoursome selection of freshly prepared salads, stir fries and curries. The menu also features Asian-inspired juices and smoothies, as well as a simple yet selective wine list.

An all day dining, Bangkok Cafe in London (Islington in the Angel building) serving an eclectic mix of Thai classics and western staples.
Sister restaurant to the popular Busaba Eathai group, Naamyaa is a collaboration between award winning restauranteur, Alan Yau and the Naamyaa team.
Naamyaa is an energetic, Bangkok Cafe in the heart of London, presenting an eclectic menu offering dishes from the east and west in an all day dining atmosphere. Emulating the feel of 24 hour dining establishments often found in Hong Kong and eclectic cafe style eateries in Thailand, guests can eat anything from authentic Thai food offerings to burgers, ceasar salads and other western food staples. The spirit of modern-day Bangkok is fused with the homegrown authenticity of Siam and colonial influences from its neighbours and the new world.
Open all day from breakfast, lunch and dinner, the menu will offer Siam heritage classics such as our signature dish Kanom Jin Naamyaa, Bangkok street foods as well as western cafe favourites.
It is a timeless space where the lines between breakfast, lunch and dinner blurs naturally within the all-day theme and creates a comfortable social moment to appreciate the world going by.
As a partnership of scholar-practitioners we are immersed in forward-thinking research which informs and enriches our own open events and work commissioned by others.
At the heart of our philosophy is the Genetics of Curiosity - three powerfully entwined strands: INQUISITIVENESS, SERENDIPITY and DISRUPTION. These drive the design of individual and social experiences - events, workshops, consultation and coaching.
We believe that by understanding the way we think we can deliver even more profound actions. It is our mission to trigger a deeper understanding of the worlds you inhabit.
We work with you to awaken or reawaken your curiosity so that you can discover the unfamiliar in the familiar and in doing so profoundly refresh your own impact on those worlds.
