A concertinaed canopy, hangs from a reclaimed wooden structure, carving a bold diagonal path through the restaurant. Caged lighting also forms an interesting ceiling feature in the interior space. The reclaimed wood frame continues to the canal side exterior where festoon lights have been used to give a laid back ‘garden’ feel and catch the eyes of passersby.

The orbs were blown to include randomly placed cavities large enough for small plants and lighting fixtures. Small white planters float amongst the orbs, as if they have escaped from the confines of glass. Underneath, benches and stools made from reclaimed wood with white steel legs are decorated with painted table markers and mason jars.
