The Agora Meeting Room
Flagship design hotel, Hilton London Bankside partnered with Bompas & Parr to launch The Agora, the world’s best meeting room packed with features specifically designed to stimulate creativity.
From flooding the room with scented air at the push of a button to specially curated objects designed to increase productivity, mood-improving lighting installations and refreshments designed to recharge physiologically, every detail is based on the science and psychology of fruitful human interactions and innovation.
Taking pride of place in the middle of the room is a custom-built table – the Crux of Creativity – featuring inlaid ley lines which point to important sites of creativity around the Bankside community including The Globe, The Tate, British Film Institute and Royal Festival Hall.
The Agora name was inspired by its translation to ‘gathering place’ in Ancient Greece and was also known to be the centre of artistic and creative trading in Athens.
