Reconnecting the consumer
with the maker
We believe that there is a desire for the consumer to reconnect with the maker, to see and hear first hand where their passions begin and their products end.
Creative, extraordinary and interesting products, produced by people using quality ingredients and materials, need a platform from which to showcase their talent and to connect with their audience face to face.
We connect creative
people to commercial
Ten Ten sets out to discover and connect with hard working, passionate creators who have compelling ideas, are motivated by the spirit of making things that express their individuality and who are the best they can be.
We provide a link between creative retailers and select well marketed, high footfall locations, offering creators the chance to showcase their workmanship, with high impact exposure.
We are an advocate
for small businesses,
facilitating a path
Above anything we want to see brilliant, creative small businesses achieve success.
We can provide access to commercial space by removing financial barriers to entry such as rent deposits, stamp duty, fit-out costs and commercial rates.
An exciting, high energy community of specialist producers
Ten Ten is passionate about showcasing small specialist producers from within local communities. We aim to work with the cutting-edge creators, recognised by their peers as up and coming or amongst the best in their field.
By populating these highly commercial spaces with amazing and likeminded craftspeople, we look to foster a high energy ambiance which excites consumers.
We believe in great things
delivered with passion
Nuno Mendes, Stephen Macintosh and Farhaan Mir founded Ten Ten after many years of working to develop and support businesses especially in the food, hospitality and services industry.
Nuno’s Loft Project saw him open his home to the public interested in tasting the creative cooking of young and talented chefs.
Stephen Macintosh played a crucial role working with the likes of Corbin & King, Heston Blumenthal and Daniel Boulud, establishing some of London’s leading restaurants.
Farhaan Mir is a serial entrepreneur with several exits to his credit. He continues to serve as an advisor to several start-up businesses which have grown to a level of recognizable success. He works closely with multiple financial services companies and leading listed and private property owners.
Together, their collective support of creative talent is firmly grounded in their passion to further the creativity that defines London.
