London eatery Dirty Bones took motivation from 1970s Brooklyn Studio 54 for its new branch in Soho, which highlights velvet seating, a wood-framed bar and a toilet holed up behind a false bookshelf.
In-house designer Lotti Lorenzetti regulated the fit-out of the eatery, situated on Denman Street. The point was to consolidate “the style lofts of Brooklyn and the allure of Studio 54”.
This brought about a space that joins crude mechanical surfaces with more sumptuous materials and textures, and in addition mixed artworks and moody lighting.
“The idea was to attempt to make a space where individuals would feel good, familiar and have the feeling if like at somebody’s local gathering,” she told us.
“The main inspiration originated from a Brooklyn artist’s space in the 70s – some place with lots of atmosphere, which blossoms with the musical and cultural impacts of the time.”
The space suits seating for 60 over an assortment of various seating zones, each with somewhat extraordinary attributes.
Velvet banquet seating lines a wall of uncovered bricks, and little tables with classroom-style seats keep running down the center of the space. Green leather upholstered stools front the bar, while the seats by the window highlight designed texture from House of Hackney.
“The Denman Street place is a small space, so it was essential to me to make distinctive areas for individuals to experience – the assorted qualities of upholstered delicate seating offers lounge, eating and working arrangements,” said Lorenzetti.
“The designed seats by the window include a delicate, fun and more feminine, and make a provocative invitation for people from the street.”
The bar is situated towards the back of the space. Very traditional, its facade is shrouded in wood boards, while glasses hang down from a metal framework above.
Close-by, an extensive bookshelf contains a combination of items, from shiny pineapples to an old television and an espresso machine. A neon sign makes a focal point, while what resembles a wall of books is really an entryway to the toilets.
Other details incorporate a dark curtain that covers a whole wall, huge plants, and works by east London artist Danny Augustine.
“Danny’s pieces are a total impression of the music side of Dirty Bones,” said Lorenzetti. “We needed the art to reminds to the first concept of Dirty Bones – fun, outdated hip jump. Danny returned with the most inconceivable choice of old fashioned hip jump prints!”
