July 2011 | We recently played at a lavish Art Deco Gala Dinner at the Landbank alongside the Soweto Gospel Choir.
“Re-setting the bar for an exclusive Cape Town Gala Event” was the brief to our team for a lavish urban dinner celebration, with cutting edge design trademarks. With its original Parkay flooring, high ceilings, structured beams and nostalgic Art Deco banking features – the newly refurbished 1920’s Landbank building – was set to host its first ever exclusive event.
It was imperative for the design concept to compliment the unique Landbank features and pay tribute to the Art Deco era – whilst setting new décor trends. No small task – but a very exciting one to our event team together with some of our top industry associates. The uniquely tailored look was contemporary Art Deco chic in black, white and silver with magenta floral accents! And although we could write about all the amazing hand-crafted details (yes – the chairs, tables, flooring, conversation lounges, stencilled swans, panelling, lighting, Perspex stands, staging and city backdrop……) in great depth – we have decided to simply let the visuals speak for themselves. Thanks to the talented teams of Foci Functions, AV Direct, Food Fanatics, The Soweto Gospel Choir, Breakfast Included and ZaraZoo we are proud to call this the Gala Dinner of the year – with spectacular entertainment, dazzling décor and lavish lighting – all reflecting the event design excellence that is so synonymous with Cape Town and – dare we say – Wedding Concepts.
