ABOUT LSP: We take the abstract elements from just about anything–a line in a book, a fashion statement. a movement, etc and weave multiple elements like music, food, language, and aesthetics together to create one memorable experience. Our concepts are constantly reinventing how we look at the past and think about the future. Whether it’s a formal evening affair set in 1920’s Paris, or a multi-level airport inspired DJ fete, LSP’s concepts always have culture at the center.
