FoodMarketo is a popup café and shop offering coffee related products and workshops. FoodMarketo features objects specifically commissioned together with products from the previous FoodMarketo Milan (at the Salone del Mobile, 2010).

FoodMarketo is a joint project by Apartamento magazine

sphere and decided to collaborate for an exclusive event
at the London Design Week 2010.

FoodMarketo’s interiors are designed by Max Lamb & Lars Frideen, and their specially commisioned furniture will be on sale directly after the event. The space also include DMOLab, a showcase of the work-in-process of 3 hand-picked up-and-coming designers: Sibylle Stoeckli, Jochem Faudet and Harry Thaler.

Participating designers includes:
All Cats Are Grey, Amandine Alessandra, Andrew Haythornthwaite and Shai Akram, Arabeschi Di Latte, Brit Leissler, David Weatherhead, Front Yard Company, Harry Thaler, Jackson Lam, Ken Kirton, Lars Frideen, Loris & Livia, Mischer Traxler, Nelly Ben Hayoun, Olivia Decaris, Peter Marigold, Tomas Alonso, Sara Ivanyi & Rob Hermes.
