Originally designed to be a home, the 150SQM layout is fragmented and the ceiling heights very low. The team at MAIA Design wanted to use local materials and craft in a contemporary context.
Handmade and 100% Eco-Friendly Art
A 250 module wooden installation was created in collaboration with local artisans in the nearby township of Channapatna.
Specialising in hand lathe woodwork and natural lacquering for over two centuries, this art form is 100% eco-friendly and handmade.
The lacquers are natural, and the colours derived from natural sources: red - manjista root, yellow - turmeric & tesu flower, green - Indigo extracted from Indigo dyes and brown - walnut bark.

Granite Walls and Eye-catching Ceiling Installation
Each module is hand turned and the forms deliberately kept modern in order to fit the context. The modules are fixed 450mm apart from one another in a grid format. Large beams cutting the space on all sides are clad with mirrors.

The mirror reflects the installation creating an illusion of extension to infinity. The visual effect makes the large 900mm beams disappear, thus opening up the space and making it lighter.
Raw silk lamps were custom made in Pondicherry. The chairs are hand-woven with coir, another traditional craft, usually used in making charpoys, a traditional Indian day bed.
Birch Plywood Sushi Bar
Locally mined light grey granite Sadharalli, and light birch wood panelling, are used extensively on the walls and floors of the restaurant to create a subtle neutral brackdrop.
Intricate layering of the Sadharalli creates a subtle sophisticated texture.
Tokyo-Inspired Colour Palette
Patterned mosaic tiles in reds, greens and yellows pop out against the subtle textural quality of the stone and wood.
Pastel pinks and greens are used to tie the palette together and add the youth/edge that was needed to make this a trendy fast casual restaurant.
