Sat 27th Nov: LN-CC - Report by Emily Beard
If you go down to Dalston today you're in for a big surprise. A huge one, in fact. Tucked away in the depths of the creative hub is new concept store Late Night Chameleon Cafe (LN-CC). But this is no run of the mill concept store.
The interior design is something to behold in the flesh, collaboration between Gary Card and his father, Christopher Card. Each room has a different theme, immersing visitors into the mood of the surroundings. The heart of the store is the futuristic honeycomb-like corridoor which links three concept rooms, a book and record store, a music room for private events, and a working studio.
The store embraces the concept of changing to fit it's purpose, sections are designed to be moved and adjusted.
But this is only the beginning for LN-CC. Their expansion ('Phase 2') will see a new room revealed, to be used as a gallery space for exhibitions and screenings.
