For Spiced Basil, a trendy restaurant, our concept was inspired by organic forms such as curves and free-flowing forms. There are lots of hues and textures such as timber and rope to hold interest and create character for the space. We left the ceiling exposed with dark grey paint to create a neutral backdrop for the intricate suspended ceiling design and added interest with the industrial-inspired light fittings in brass and tinted glass.
The herringbone pattern on the floor is exaggerated by the different tones of wood used. The idea of combining a wood floor with a stone floor was to create zones in the large space. The herringbone language flows through to the screens, which create privacy within the space. The herringbone pattern also continues at the bar, where we used different materials such as stone, marble and glass with backlit details to create a themed feature wall. The bar counter is a stainless steel frame with a backlit live edge timber detail and a clean, smooth marble top.
For the booths, we took an unconventional path whilst maintaining design language with the herringbone pattern on the upholstery, wallpaper and ceiling panel design. The illusion of suspended details is carried forward with the rope herringbone pattern screens, the hanging tables and floating seats. Furniture chosen is contemporary with pops of colour and the tables are made of wood with metallic frames to add character. The fixed seating made on organic free-flowing feature wall creates a focal point in the space and highlights a more relaxed zone.
Overall, the fun, quirky play on free-flowing design creates zones that let different elements come together in one space.
