New Club At 02 Arena Set To Debut

LONDON (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Design Week has revealed some of the details for the forthcoming nightclub at the AEG's O2 Arena, dubbed Matter.

The 2,000-capacity venue is being designed with an industrial ethic, an "allusion to a temple of concrete" said club owner Cameron Leslie said.

Among the features to be included in the design are a custom-built dance floor. "Most Technical has designed the sound and lighting and is working alongside partner company Djenerate to develop the dance floor," said a spokesman from Pentagram, the design firm.

Other elements at the new club include a full-on digital video display system to provide hardware and custom-designed elements for a residency by audio-visual VJ partners Inside Us All.

The price for the project wasn't specified but is estimated to run at six figures. The club is set for a September 18th opening.

The schedule for the first two weeks:

19th – Live Launch Night – UNKLE Live, Late Of The Pier Live, Iglu & Hartley Live, Huw Stephens
20th – Club Launch Night – Carl Cox, Yousef & More TBA

3rd – This is Not London – Simian Mobile Disco
18th – This Is Not London – Moshi Moshi Records Label Party
24th – This Is Not London – James Murphy
