Our speaker at the August 2011 CreativeMornings/London was Chris Bangle, formerly design director at BMW Group and now running Chris Bangle Associates. (chrisbangleassociates.com/) The event was generously hosted by Buro Happold (burohappold.com) and Sense Worldwide (senseworldwide.com).
Breakfast was provided by the amazing folks at L'Eto Caffe (155 Wardour Street, Soho) and Vantra (11-13 Soho Street, Soho).
Finally, a big shout out to 'Femi T for providing her photography services on the day.

This is Sniff, a soft toy dog in green cotton plush. His carefully crafted exterior qualities don’t reveal that he is anything but a cuddly toy. But wireless technology allows him to ‘sniff’ and react to objects that come close to his nose.
By focusing on non-visual interactive qualities such as tactility, sound and vibration, Sniff is designed with the particular needs of children with sight impairment in mind. But Sniff also works for everyone, young and old, where he becomes a companion in play, work and everyday life.
