Do you ever look around and wonder how ‘things’ came to ‘be’? The objects in our lives that we take for granted. We use abuse and ignore them without a care for who made them, what they’re made from, or how they got there. Admittedly,...More

All designed by David Mellor's design team in an iconic ambience and with a café and shopping facilities. Do not miss a visit to this wonderfully-designed facility and check-out a visit to the factory - I think on week-ends only.
