Sushi Samba, Heron Tower

Bishopsgate, Central London

This was a collaboration between Risner Design, ZAP Architecture and Kitu Design. We produced and constructed the entrance tunnel as the guests arrived out of the glass elevator on the 39th Floor of Heron Tower, Bishopsgate for Sushi Samba’s 3rd birthday. 10 meters of hand cut and folded paper butterflies (2000 in all) added a dynamic tailwind for guests to enter the celeb-filled party where Grace Jones was the headline act.
