The Merchant’s Table is the concept of Susanna Cook, Creative Director and Founder of Allies Design Studio; a design studio who create branding, packaging, literature and overall styling for for principled, aspiring clients, the best within their field.
TMT are inviting makers, designers, artists and producers for residencies throughout the year, allowing customers to come closer to understand and appreciate the processes of the creative’s craft and disciplines. An appetite to trade is essential as this is a commercial entity. During their residencies we will host related events and workshops and partner with La Fromagerie for events and workshops in London. Throughout the producer or maker’s residencies an extended range or their products or work will be merchandised, with key pieces selling throughout the year.
We aim to bring exceptional London and Suffolk producers, makers and artists together in one place.
With more than twenty years of experience proudly working alongside clients who run their businesses with great integrity, The Merchant’s Table has evolved as a natural extension of the work we do within the design studio.
Drawing on our experiences from working within the food and drink industry, we have always been fascinated by the table and what it represents to different people. For us, it is a place to share; creativity, experiences, knowledge and most importantly, food.
Our design focus is food and all which surrounds and celebrates it, hence the manifestation of our ethos in The Merchant’s Table.
