Rib® Wedge canopy at Honey & Co
This RIB® wedge canopy installed at the tiny Honey & Co Restaurant in Fitzrovia is a modern design of commercial canopy benefitting from a rigid structure and the opportunity for simple, yet clear, branding on the flat surfaces and valance. The special construction method we employ comprises a rigid assembly method, unique to us. This particular canopy does not demonstrate all the branding possibilities as only the valance has been decorated. However, it can be seen how the opportunity can be exploited on the main covers using our unique RAGS® graphics process which ensures a crisp, clean graphic perfectly the client’s branding style. The extreme rigidity of the RIB wedge canopy is made possible by the incorporation of light weight aluminium profiles fitted together without the use of degradable plastic parts; the construction ensures exceptional resistance to weathering. Further, the RIB® manufacturing system gives the fabric wedge canopy cover an exceptionally high tension which ensures the client branding is presented in a bold manner which resists the accumulation of dust and dirt.
Opened in 2012, Honey & Co is a tiny restaurant serving traditional middle eastern food using the best ingredients available of the kind you find in people’s homes. There’s always lamb roasting in the oven, salads & tahini with everything, lots of cakes on the counter and jams and cookies on the shelves if you want to take something sweet with you. Since opening, the owners have also published a cookbook that tells about setting up the restaurant and a baking book that speaks about their daily routines at work.
Fitzrovia was named after the Fitzroy Tavern which, in turn, was named after Charles FitzRoy (later Baron Southampton), who first developed the northern part of the area in the 18th century. FitzRoy purchased the Manor of Tottenhall and built Fitzroy Square, to which he gave his name; nearby Fitzroy Street also bears his name. The square is the most distinguished of the original architectural features of the district, having been designed in part by Robert Adam. The south-western area was first developed by the Duke of Newcastle who established Oxford Market, now the area around Market Place.
