We were thrilled to be commissioned once again by architecture practice Softroom • Architecture and Design to design and make bespoke curtains for an existing Wahaca restaurant in the centre of Bristol.
The 'Collage' curtains take their inspiration from cut & paste collage and feature a playful, energetic design of positive and negative shapes, stripes and floating forms. The curtains when closed help to form a dynamic backdrop to the eating space and when parted help to reveal a larger dining area, allowing the restaurant to expand and contract the size of the seating area when necessary.
The final curtains span over 12m in total and are made from 9 panels of machine stitched appliqué finished in a combination of Bute Fabrics two tone tweed, wool felt and velvet. The base of the curtain is once again cuffed with 'antique' leather.
The curtains have been suspended from the ceiling on bespoke tracks with a corded system to allow for simple and easy opening & closing.
We're so excited to have worked on another large scale project and would like to thank Softroom • Architecture and Design and Wahaca Bristol for commissioning us and for the awesome challenge of creating our longest piece of work to date!
