In summer 2010, PizzaExpress commissioned London design agency Ab Rogers Design (ARD) to transform its Richmond restaurant into a ‘Living Lab’ combining experiential design, advanced developments in restaurant acoustics, and a reenergised approach to display and service. With an innate love of Italy and its inimitable food – not to mention the fond childhood memories of visiting his local branch of PizzaExpress with his Italian grandmother fresh in his mind – Rogers jumped at the chance.
