Simon Cooper Colley
Simon Cooper Colley formed the company in 2004 with over 25 years’ experience in the Catering Industry and a degree in Catering Systems. His design experience includes Hotel Kitchens, Fast Food Outlets, In-Flight Catering, Food Halls, Kiosks, Retail Outlets, Farm Shops and Restaurants. Clients he has worked for in the past include Marks and Spencer, J. Sainsbury, ICL, Welcome Trust and Luminar Leisure. When he’s not working he’s tending the kitchen garden or building clay ovens.
Beatrice Lacey is our creative guru. A degree in Fine Art at the University of Goldsmiths studying under Craig Martin and a contemporary of Damien Hirst, she went on to an MA in Fine Art at UCL University of Canterbury. The Cooper8 offices has a working studio and gallery attached to it. Beatrice’s input into our designs is always unique and interesting. She adds the creative genius and sparkle. When Beatrice is not in the studio she is collecting “useful and beautiful objects” …. including recipe books to add to her extensive collection.
Giorgia has been working in the industry for over 10 years. She began at Cooper8 Ltd as a CAD Technician with a strong background in IT and a commitment to maintain technical skills and up to date knowledge of design software.
Her creative energy, love of music and the arts, and her interest in history and architecture, have led her to become a crucial part of our Interior Design team. She has a BA(Hons) First Class in Interior Design and is currently studying for her masters.
In addition to this her love of cooking led her to take up a role in the local soup kitchen and has managed it for the past 3 years, also acquiring her Level 3 Food Safety Supervision.
