C:lab event // Dinner at Harry's
20 jun 2014 by Nur El Shami
Mr Thaler didn't only charm us with his live-in studio designed and built by himself, but also surprised us with a creative and beautifully presented 4-course dinner: Italian-Japanese fusion style.
After stimulating conversations about his work and practice over 3 courses, we could have expected anything but a (PINK) homemade ginger pasta, of course, Harry-style and in tone with all the colours of his London fields studio.
Guests had a hard time leaving and also got a sneak peek on his newest prototypes and designs.
We can only hope Harry will host us again soon.
