Child Studio the more I like them. It is the same for Humble Pizza and the spectacles store Cubitt as well, both published on +DECO.
Today we are going to look at Child Studio‘s latest project in the Saint John’s Wood district of London, not far from the Abbey Road pedestrian crossing made famous by the Fab Four. The founders of Child Studio Alexy Kos and Che Huang designed this interesting space -originally a post office- keeping in mind its history. The interior preserves the historical memory of the modernist building in which the restaurant is located and they have also introduced some distinctive Japanese elements.
The blue geometrical ceiling complements perfectly the custom-made dark cherry wood panelling perfectly. The black floor gives the space an oriental feeling when the glass block partition introduces a curve element allowing in the meanwhile the light to flow. Dotted around there are some legendary design pieces such as the Pipistrello table light designed by Gae Aulenti in 1965, the moulded plywood armchairs designed by Norman Cherner in 1958, the cast aluminium stools by the Japanese designer Naoto Fukasawa, some antique brass sconces by Stilnovo.
What can I say….another ‘bravo!” for Child Studio!
