Three Yellow Circles by Compartment S4
Three large yellow circles floating in the midst of infinite matter, collide and stick to one another to form a glowing center. This little whimsical story forms the basis of the design idea of the project. The most important element of the project is its flooring, and the rest follows it.
The three large golden-yellow Jaisalmer stone circles are surrounded by a random black and white terrazzo of industrial waste cut pieces of Ambaji marble and Kadappa stone.
Created entirely out of easily available natural stones, this flooring design creates a prominent visual impact as one enters the restaurant. Almost like bright objects floating in space or like kebabs floating in delicious Mughlai gravy!
Overall, the palette of materials, colours, and textures places this restaurant comfortably between fine dining and casual dining. The forest-green sofas contrast with the mud-orange tiles and fluted wooden panelling on the walls. The dark teak wood furniture contrasts nicely with the bright natural stones on the floor. The hanging brass lights, brass utensils, and mirror panels on the walls evoke nostalgia for being in a haveli or a palace somewhere in Patiala, reminiscent of the spaces, culture, landscape, and, most importantly, the food!
