TriBeCa’s design is reminiscent of the food and drink it offers and resonates with the clientele’s longing for quality and authenticity. The tactility of the space as well as the attention to detail offers an escape from the rather bland mall environment. It is the perfect setting to enjoy what the good life has to offer.
The logo hand painted onto the tiles and glass and the billboard-like sign (hand crafted from solid mild steel and brass) are bold and visible. On the crockery, seating cushions and napkins, the logo reverted to a more subtle and tacit use, against a layered palette of copper, brass and solid wood. The space has a sense of modesty and the allure of a bygone era when reading and traveling were romantic and time for eating and enjoyment was the essence of life and not a mere action for survival.
The owners/ chefs that has a particularly good eye for materials, texture, proportion and the found object played an important part in the making of the “meaningful thing”. All tangible objects that could be branded such as crockery, furniture and lights were handmade with dedication and love by great artists and artisans.
