Gallery 1&2 Coffee Bar at Sotheby’s

Visitors to London might consider a visit to Gallery 1&2 Coffee Bar, Bond Street’s newest Coffee Bar to admire stunning works of art with a cup of delicious coffee in hand. This contemporary coffee bar is open Monday to Friday (8.30am-4.30pm) on St George Street.

Display Developments were delighted to be invited to tender for the supply of two external polished brass menu cases to promote Gallery 1&2. The requirement was for the menu cases to be mounted above a low wall on purpose built brackets to ensure the menu display was located as close to the pavement as possible and at an optimum viewing height.

Polished brass is just one optional finish from the Silvercases range along with both mirror polished and brushed stainless steel framing. All Silvercases are now supplied with the option of LED illumination and come as standard with a toughened glass hinged and double locking door. These superb quality menu cases have been manufactured by the Silvercases division of Display Developments for nearly 40 years and are still the menu case of choice for many top restaurants and hotels in the UK.

Hellas Helvetia Recommend Display Developments For Outdoor Display Cases.

Steven Kalogroulis, of Hellas-Helvetia Ltd, a leading London property management company, was looking to update the display units outside his company premises. They originally had four units designed and fabricated by Silvercases over 40 years ago but he wanted bespoke replacements manufactured to slightly larger specifications and also to incorporate LED lighting.

Following a consultation with our expert design team, Mr Kalogroulis gave the go-ahead for the fabrication of the new stainless steel display units. On completion of the project, Steven was happy to give the following glowing recommendation.

“I recently purchased 4 new display units from Display Developments for my property company that I am extremely happy about. The 4 new units were to replace 4 identical units that my father had bought from Silvercases (now Display Developments) over 40 years ago which were still working and in excellent condition.

The only reason we changed to new ones was that I wanted the new display cases to be slightly bigger (wider and taller) and so that we could have more modern lighting with LEDs. I cannot express how good these units are compared to other cheap Aluminium display units I looked at that look tatty after a few years use. I see so many aluminium noticeboards around my area and they all look cheaply made and do not have the quality look of Silvercases.

Hellas Helvetia Display Cases

The units that Display Developments manufacture are made of high quality stainless steel and look great, have amazing build quality and last over 40 years with me being the proof! The units look professional and sharp, have fantastic hinges to open and close the doors meaning they do not bend over time, have fantastic locks, and maintain the quality feel and look over time.

I don’t often write a review, unless I am extremely happy with the service and product. I am very happy to write this review as these units are a class above anything else on the market.

The service I got from Display Developments, and in particular Malcolm, was top class. We gave the exact measurements that we wanted and their team ensured we got exactly what we required.

If you want your business to look sharp and you intend to trade for many years as I do, I can’t recommend enough that you should use Display Developments to build your custom made units”.

Display Developments Provide The Perfect Solution For The Holiday Inn

Display Developments have recently supplied a new outdoor menu display case to the Holiday Inn Hotel at Armacao de Pera on the beautiful Algarve coast of Portugal.

The requirement was for an external menu case to display the menu at their new beachside restaurant called the Palm Beach. The brief specified a robust, LED illuminated menu case capable of withstanding the sometimes harsh Atlantic weather and of course the hot sun.

Blaze Laserlights Project

Display Developments were approached by Blaze, the urban cycling brand leaders, to manufacture unique display cases to showcase their new laserlights in retail stores. The display case needed an integral mirror to reflect light from the laserlights onto the ceiling.

Display Developments are skilled in making acrylic display cases but the projection of the laserlight beam presented a challenge. A key requirement was the ability to reflect the laser light at a specific angle ensuring the light would be visible from anywhere in the store. Due to the limitation of the overall dimensions of the case, it had to be designed to ensure the laserlight was positioned perfectly straight in the middle of the display case.

Several prototypes were completed to test the different mirror angles but the final design totally fulfilled the brief and Blaze were delighted with the finished product.

Why Menu Display Cases Still Have Their Place

If you frequently visit restaurants you will no doubt have noticed that many of the fast food chains are now displaying menu options on digital tablets such as ipads. As the majority of their customers are younger and therefore more comfortable browsing and even placing orders via a tablet display this does seems like a sensible menu display choice and could even help attract more customers to that cheaper end of the market.

However, rest assured that most restaurant customers still prefer to view a printed menu and therefore they will have the full menu on view. They can scan the whole menu display without having to scroll or touch a screen that others have touched with greasy or dirty fingers and also of course left their germs on the screen to be transferred onto the next viewer’s fingers.

Mirror Polished Menu Case

As the title of this article says, Display Developments believe menu display cases and stands still have their place and that place is most definitely front of house and in the right position to ensure your menu has maximum exposure. Whether you are looking for an indoor or even an outdoor menu display stand, Display Developments have the ideal solution with a diverse range of menu cases and stands to choose from. From the traditional London Menu Stand to the much more functional & minimalist Vector Menu Stand, they can offer you the perfect menu stand to match your décor or location.
