FMG was commissioned by architectural practice Softroom to design and make bespoke curtains for a new Wahaca restaurant in Brixton, London. The restaurant resides in the original Railway hotel and mixes original restored fetaures with bold new interior design.
We were asked to create large scale velvet patchwork curtains which would greet customers as they step through the door. The finished design sees an abstract face fractured and built up of intersecting geometric shapes and lines and takes inspiration from street art and Mexican wrestling masks. The reverse of the curtains feature the same design in outlined in green, blue and yellow embroidery on grey velvet.
The project is completed and the restaurant opened in February 2015.
