SLEEP + EAT 2018
Theatre concept design

November 12, 2018

We are thrilled to announce that we have been busy creating an exciting project in partnership with Wilson Associates for this year’s Sleet + Eat event. One of the centerpieces of the event will be the event theatre which will grace the thoughts, opinions, and discussions of world-renowned leaders spanning the links that are driving the hospitality and catering sector across the world.

Working in tandem with the international world leading interior architecture design studio Wilson Associates, we have collaborated with the organizers of this year’s Sleep+Eat event to create a truly beautiful and amazing space which we are very excited to show during the Sleep + Eat event which takes place from 20th-21st Nov at the London Olympia.

The conceptual intention for the theatre installation was, right from the start, to express life’s continual process of learning and discovery along the path that we hope leads to a positive progression for ourselves and our loved ones. The connections we harbor and the knowledge we gain along this path usually defines, and at the same time differentiates us as individuals among the population of our generation.

Linked to the duality of the title of the Sleep Eat event, our concept for the theatre space is titled “Perspective: to see, and to share”, represents the duality of both the physical and the intellectual position of a shared learning experience. The intention is to create a space that is liberal to the exchange of knowledge and invigorating to drive both engagement and enjoyment in seeing and sharing in the lectures and talks of the event.

Seeking to represent this conceptual overview within the physical realm of the event hall, the aspiration of our concept is to create a setting of a rooftop terrace chillout/ hangout on a summers evening.

The rooftop setting that allows us to rise above the world to the fresh seclusion of the sky, and provide the invigorating perspective of the vista of the world all the way to the horizon. Combined with a relaxed comforting ambiance of this peaceful social and engaging setting, an immersion of ideas and self-expression can flow like the warmth of a rich sunset dropping across the shoulders of its viewers.

Be sure to register for the exhibition at, to experience the atmosphere and energy of our concept installation for yourself.

And of course, we look forward to seeing you all there.

Reimagining the iconic badminton chair, Ways reflects the idea that there is always a different viewpoint/way to deal with an single situation. The original single use badminton chair has been converted into two separate pieces, a free standing shelving unit and an independent stool, the expansion and diversity of the original function is intended to reflect the fantastic diversity of support provided by @maggiescentres and provide a broader perspective on the way the objects can be viewed and used.

Getting ready for Milano!

February 17, 2018

We’re returning once again to possible the biggest festival of design, not just on the calendar, but on the planet. The Milan design festival is the longest running festival of design. Following the success from our previous year attending the Milan design festival we will return again to showcase the latest product designs we have developed and produced.

Bright Potato exhibits for the third consecutive year at the world famous SaloneSatellite exhibition as part of the Milan Design Week festival from 17th – 22th April. The exhibitions which is always recognised as one of the top highlights of the entire Milan design festival has built its reputation on two key elements; the most innovative work in the fields of furniture, lighting and product design, and all coming from new and young design studio’s.

This year’s Salone sees Bright Potato undertaking there most ambitious release of contemporary furniture and lighting designs to date. Showcasing four new chair designs along with a large feature lighting installation, the studio has focused the direction of its current works around the observations and exploration surrounding a common direction which can best be described under the theme of “transience of attachment”.


The pieces created for this year´s show are our attempt to decipher and portray an understanding and interpretation of the effects of attachment, or lack thereof, towards the objects we choose to have in our lives. Investigating elements of “atmosphere & environment”, “comfort & security”, “balance & harmony” and “time & movement”, we have created five new pieces: ArNOStalatices (some production ready products and some design concept prototypes) that they will launch at this year´s Salone de Mobile in Milan, the design capital of Italy´s and arguably the entire world.

If you are in Milan stop by for a visit to our stand B-01, Hall 13 Salone Satellite to see our latest product and design releases.

Happy international 3D printing day

December 3, 2015

The 3rd December was the international day of 3D printing and to celebrate/mark it we decided to the have some fun with our 3D printer!

So we decided to 3D print a ukulele and sing some songs 🙂




So contrary to popular knowledge (or lack of), 3D printing isn’t as simple or as instant as you’d think. Sometimes during setup, you get interesting things like this that happen!!! which by the way is very annoying, because it usually means that the piece is ruined 🙁


Due to capacity of our 3D printer, to print a full ukulele, we had to divide up the model of the ukulele and print it in sections. When we had all the parts successfully printed, we could then assemble them to complete the ukulele.



You can see from the video, the operational speed (or lack of) of the 3D printer as it is actually printing the first part of the ukulele, is not very fast. The 3D printer creates the parts by building up multiple layers or material to achieve the final full part.

There are a number of different types of 3D printers but this one is called fused disposition modeling., because each of the layers it prints is fused to the previous layer created, therefor building up the finished model.

For our ukulele, 1275 layer of just 0.35mm thick were printed in order to get the complete size of the ukulele. The overall print time for this amounted to approx 20 hours. So not as instant as you might have thought!

But a more impressive point is that out 3D printed ukulele is completely biodegradable! as it is made from a plastic called polylactic acid or PLA which is derived from corn starch and or sugar cane.


The successfully printed bottom half of the body of the ukulele. Even the saddle and the bridge are printed as part of the body and not separate parts requiring fitting and set up adjusting after. Even cooler is that the holes in the saddle for the strings are included in the print. approx 300 printed layers.




Dry fitting of the parts of the body. approx 630 printed layers




The finished ukulele, approx 1275 layers, assembled with tuners (which are purchased not printed), strung and ready to rock and roll. Unsurprisingly it actually works, and doesn’t sound too bad! for an eco-friendly, bio-degradable plastic ukulele 🙂
