We’re celebrating two big birthdays this year – Diespeker’s 140th year as a natural stone and terrazzo specialist, and MD John Krause’s ‘not’ 60th.
John’s landmark birthday was actually in June 2020, but the celebrations were less extensive than they should have been due to Covid restrictions. This year, within the current guidelines, John celebrated with family and friends in the gardens of his Wimbledon home.
2021 is the company’s 140th birthday, so Diespeker’s marketing agency Terra Ferma Media decided to mark both occasions with a very special gift, a huge slab of chocolate terrazzo bearing the Diespeker trademark ‘D’.
The chocolate was made by Brik, an innovative East London chocolate design company which specialises in edible textures and architectural surfaces.
And which terrazzo design was chosen for the birthday chocolate? TE007 of course! One of the most enduring designs, popular with Diespeker’s clients – and which also features in John’s own home. The chocolate slab included grey chippings with a sesame flavour, and the warmer brown chippings and the ‘D’ were flavoured with caramel.
Happy birthday John. And happy birthday Diespeker. We look forward to further 140th celebrations later in the year.
