Conceived by the renowned Belgian-German artist Carsten Höller, the Double Club was a Fondazione Prada project located in an old Victorian warehouse in central London open to the public from November 2008 to July 2009.
The Double Club consisted three spaces: a bar, a restaurant and a disco. Each space was divided into equally-sized Western and Congolese sections on both a decorative and functional level, with the aim of generating an inspiring perspective of identity and cultural coexistence.
At the invitation of Carsten Höller, Clemens Weisshaar and Reed Kram designed key elements of the Western sections, and lent the artist technical expertise in the production of other pieces throughout the Double Club.
The Double Club was a not-for-profit project – 50 per cent of profits were donated to the City of Joy charity that generates specialised projects to help abused women and children in the Congo.
