Dishoom

Carnaby Street, London


Taking refuge at 22 Kingly Street in the heart of Soho, this was to be the fourth restaurant in the Dishoom series, spawned from the 60's beat scene. The story behind this restaurant tells of an young Irani gentleman studying in London in the late sixties. Called back to India to deal with a family bereavement, he struggles to come to terms with leaving this place he now calls home. The full story can be found here.

Sixties design and styling, feature pendants and one off chandeliers of typically Scandinavian descent, were sourced from vintage outlets including Modernica @ 1st Dibs and BriceBerard.com.

The building itself ment well meaning site specific challenges were few and far between. We did however produce a number of bespoke products for the project. The pendants over the bar were spun from a heavy gauge brass to ensure that they didn't warp or flex during the polishing process. The raised area at the back of the restaurant houses 4 large bespoke tube chandeliers, reminiscent of the pipes of an organ - These were made from steel and plated Brass.
