Project – Rule the Rolls
Location – 49A Khan Market, New Delhi
Interior Designer – Design by Meta, New Delhi
The restaurant’s casual and friendly style is reflected in the contemporary design, easy furniture, and wall textures. It’s a colourful and pleasing design style that brings a touch of the Mediterranean spirit to the space. Inspired by Mughal colours of blue tones, a sense of freshness and coolness is derived from the cool tones of the palette (Light Blue, Dark Blue and white) which create a mix of colours and textures. A bold geometric flooring pattern creates a style statement for the design.
There’s a play of different lines in this space—vertical, horizontal, arches and diagonal in flooring, which creates a sense of movement and playfulness. They give a sense of busyness to the space, too. The white background balances the colourful décor, and there’s a balance between the non-patterned and patterned elements as well.
An exploration of the 70’s façade of khan market, inspired the designer to create a collage of windows which overlook the partly open kitchen, set in a series of window patterns with textured glass and gold paint effects. Square Wall Panelling creates a composition of the brand’s story, mixed with customised eclectic sketches, mirror and textured paint work. Hexagonal blue tiles and customised paints, create textural variations and a hue of “Mediterranean joi de vivre”. Emphasis is given to the seating area, which comprises of the 6-seater arrangement in a relaxed bench made of ash wood balanced with high seating arrangement on the other side.
The customised glass chandeliers add a pop of gold and sparkle, in the ceiling, which was customised for the décor.
The play of colours, lines, style, proportion, patterns, and shapes balance everything out, making it a bright vibrant space.
