 More than a Door

We enjoyed our Friday Think Tank in style on Friday, indulging in some nibbles while lounging in some rather comfortable chairs. You could call it Gold Class Think Tank.

The theme was doors. Each person submitted 3 doors, each with their own story to tell. Some old, some new and some that just hold a special place in your heart.

It all seems pretty basic, but the session really did get you thinking about doors and how they are so much more than just a way to enter and exit. A door can blend seamlessly or it can stand out in a crowd. It can be a piece of art, a tourist attraction and they can be incredibly versatile.

Stroll the quaint streets of Notting Hill in London and the simple yet brightly coloured doors with cascading florals summon you inside for tea. Please note, we don’t condone trespassing.

Oman in the Middle East is known for its unique and personal doors. A treasure trove of visual delights along with the smell of Middle Eastern cuisine is sure to inspire the senses.

Handle or no handle. Tall and skinny, or round and wide. Just like us, they come in all shapes and sizes each with a story to tell.

We look forward to the next Think Tank, an opportunity to think a little differently and build ideas.
