Special Bespoke RIB Dutch canopy installed at the new Claude Bosi restaurant; located on the first Floor at the striking Bibendum building in Fulham Road SW11. The Dutch canopy is an economical, strong, practical canopy ideal for branding, in this case Cool Grey on Admiral blue fabric. Our Dutch canopy can be supplied in retractable, or fixed, options, with an integral strength which permits it to withstand quite heavy weather when installed correctly. The canopy has numerous shop front fixing options and can even be fitted to some signs or shutter-boxes, where these have been securely fixed.
Chef Claude Bosi, who recently announced the closure of two-Michelin-starred Hibiscus in London and has now opened this new venture on the site of London’s Bibendum. The project is a collaboration with veteran restaurateur Sir Terence Conran and involves a more casual restaurant downstairs, retaining the existing oyster and seafood bar, accompanied by a fine dining restaurant upstairs.
Bibendum occupies what was once the British headquarters for French tyre company Michelin. It was lovingly restored to a restaurant, shop and office space in 1986 and was bought from Michelin by Sir Terence Conran and the late Lord Paul Hamlyn. Bibendum, commonly referred to in English as the Michelin Man, is the symbol of the Michelin tyre company. Introduced at the Lyon Exhibition of 1894 where the Michelin brothers had a stand, Bibendum is one of the world's oldest trademarks. The slogan Nunc est bibendum (Drink up) is taken from Horace's Odes. He is also referred to as Bib or Bibelobis.
