Заданието на клиентите ни бе, да разработим редизайн...
Restaurant and club design has always been our passion and our core business. Having designed some of the most remarkable and successful venues in Bulgaria, we see each new space as an opportunity to bring taste, insight, drama and fun to a particular environment and a particular audience. Our latest project is a venue located in central London. The concept of the investors was to create a restaurant that would serve modern continental cuisine and would at some point in the night merge with the night club in the adjacent space.
The restaurant space is dominated by a huge chandelier created using hand-blown crystal abstract forms each fitted with a LED pixel. The whole structure creates a 3d light sculpture, which leads the guests’ gaze to the show kitchen where head chef Georgi Yaneff (formerly of The Bazaar at SLS Hotel, Beverly Hills) works his magic.
We saw this project as an opportunity to bring glamour and authenticity to a city that is often too Spartan in its approach to the night club scene. A grass like metal structure envelopes the whole soffit of the club. Hidden amongst the metal stems is a complex matrix of over 2200 LED pixels. Another prominent decorative feature are the oversized steel bells, connected to laser installation on the DJ deck the bells ring when the laser’s light is interrupted.
In addition to creating the layout of the venue, the interior and lighting design our clients also entrusted us with creating the branding of DSTRKT. The logo is influenced by a section of a map of the streets of London in which we saw a resemblance to the Cyrillic letter D which we decided to use to embed the eastern influence that the clients bring to the project.
The project which was finalized in less than six months from its inception presented a number of challenges. We needed to work with suppliers from all over the world to create what we had envisioned, the Trocadero is a section 20 building which presented a lot of technical restrictions, but despite or perhaps because of these challenges we managed to finalize the project on time with any compromise. Testament to the fact is that DSTRKT has recently been nominated for awards in two categories in the prestigious Bar and Restaurant Design awards. We are proud to say that this is the only venue nominated in two categories - club design and lighting design. In addition the venue is also nominated for the London Club and Bar Awards for best club and bar design, and best new club!
