Astrid and Miyu

Retail Industry

The Business

Astrid & Miyu was founded in 2012 by Connie Nam. Born in Seoul, Korea she spent much of her life travelling and living in different countries. Inspired by her mother, jewellery had been a part of her life from a very young age.

Anytime she travelled she would always pick something up from local markets or small quirky jewellers. Her purchases were always spontaneous and serendipitous. However, when she wanted to purchase with intent for family, friends or herself she struggled to find a go-to brand. The experiences in existing brands were stale and impersonal, with products under glass counters and sales staff in black uniform. It all felt staid and uninspiring.

Connie saw this as an opportunity to bring something different to the market. Inspired by her local jeweller back home in Seoul, she wanted to offer products that were full of sentiment and innovative in design, together with an experience that was personal and engaging, and most importantly to create a brand that is inclusive and empowering.

A decade later and Astrid & Miyu is internationally celebrated as being more than just a jewellery brand.

The Challenge

To implement a single electrical compliance solution at their Leeds site situated in the Victoria Quarter. To liaise with both Astrid & Miyu & The Victoria Quarter to ensure that neither parties’ business was interrupted by the inspection & testing services which meant agreeing access out of hours for some of the project.

The Solution

The solutions in this scenario were single solutions based on the requested requirements by the head offices based in London, who in turn introduced us to the local site contact in Leeds. They were concerned about testing the emergency lighting in the shop and whether it would turn off all the lights in trading hours so we called in just to verify that emergency lights were connected so that they could be tested with out isolating normal lighting services. We verified this was the case which satisfied the client and ensured the smooth running of the project once started.

The Results

The project ran smoothly its now complete and from an inspection & testing point of view the installation is now compliant.
