TopBrewer helps Tétris design concept come alive at CBI London HQ

The CBI moved their London HQ into a new 25,000 sq ft space on the 4th Floor of Cannon Place as part of a transition to embrace open plan working principles. The CBI has over 240,000 members and is the UK’s premier business lobbying organisation.

The new space has been designed by Tétris UK to not only improve communication flow through increased collaborative working and informal social interaction, but to also foster creativity and to create a vibrant yet relaxed and agile look and feel.

The TopBrewer works perfectly in the members' lounge as it is the ideal solution for a self-service approach to premium coffee that is versatile enough to cater for the needs of everybody’s individual tastes and preferences.

Key facts

  • Workplace 
  • Business membership
  • UK 
  • 100+ daily users
  • 1 x TopBrewer
  • Member hub, lounge 
  • Coffee

It is a technologically advanced solution which members love for its functionality and clean lines, as well as making great drinks.

A new café’ hub and a members lounge

The space incorporates a new café’ hub and a members lounge where its members are invited to view the premises as ‘their office’; a place where they can catch up with work, simply charge their mobile phone or enjoy a freshly brewed coffee from the newly installed TopBrewer coffee machine.

Members can individually customise their drinks using the TopBrewer app. The minimal swan neck tap design and silent brewer, which uniquely resides under the counter, means that it complements the modern open plan workspace in a subtle way.

Ian Cowell from Tétris UK adds:

“The TopBrewer has really helped to make our design concept come alive and has contributed to the excitement and innovation of the project. On a practical level, Scanomat UK, provided comprehensive installations guides and support to enable a seamless implementation.”
