American firm Rockwell Group used teak panelling, oxidised copper and tropical plants to create a warm and inviting atmosphere in a Manhattan eatery serving Indonesian cuisine.
這家擁有84個座位的餐廳由廚師Cedric和Ochi Vongerichten帶領，提供具有法國風味的印尼菜肴，如烤金槍魚鱈魚和沙爹雞肉。紐約 Rockwell Group 設計了這個186平方米的空間，營造出了熱帶與市中心交匯的氛圍。整個空間融入了東南亞風格的裝飾。
Led by chefs Cedric and Ochi Vongerichten, the 84-seat restaurant offers Indonesian dishes with a French influence, such as roasted akuna cod and chicken satay.New York studio Rockwell Group designed the 2,000 square feet (186 square metres) space to have a “tropical-meets-downtown vibe”. Finishes and decor inspired by Southeast Asia are incorporated throughout.
The exterior consists of large sheets of glass set within oxidised-copper frames. Laser-cut screens line the top and bottom of the facade.A glazed door leads into the dining area, while a traditional Indonesian wooden door provides access to the restaurant’s below-grade service area.Guests step into a slender front room with a wooden ceiling and brick walls coated with a milky whitewash. Wooden tables are paired with tan leather chairs. Perforated lighting fixtures cast speckled light across the tables and walls.
In one corner, a curved banquette is encircled by skinny, totem-like sculptures from Indonesia. A contemporary glass chandelier hangs overhead.”The custom light fixture composed of clustered, hand-painted glass globes casts beautiful shadows at night and adds warmth during the day,” the team said.
The bar area features teak panels and a patchwork of marble tiles. Suspended from the ceiling is a shelving system filled with liquor bottles and lush plants. Some portions are left open while others are covered with amber-tinted glass.
An arched entryway leads to a slender corridor, where the team installed a drink rail made of live-edge wood. Bits of moss poke through the white brick walls, lending an earthy feel to the compact space.A second corridor features a bar overlooking the open kitchen. Weathered copper adds dashes of colour to the neutral-toned space.
