Interior architecture and design studio Macaulay Sinclair commissioned us to manufacture all the tables for a new Dishoom, The Bombay Café. The new 9,000 square foot site at Granary Square, King’s Cross is the largest venture for the Dishoom group. We were delighted to be involved with their latest venue, having previously worked on the Shoreditch café.
Our bespoke furniture needed to reflect the heritage of the Irani cafés in Bombay, that Dishoom takes so much influence from. Working closely with Macaulay Sinclair, we went through several design processes to achieve the client’s desired finish for the furniture.
The café tables were manufactured with a mixture of solid sapele tops, some inlaid with bianco carrara and nero marquina marble. Also included were the signature Dishoom tables comprising ‘gingham fabric’ sealed with glass surrounded by sapele lipping. Five high ‘poseur’ tables were commissioned also in a mixture solid sapele and marble tops. As well as the main café tables, we manufactured two ‘chef’s tables’ for the private dining mezzanine area, these were constructed in solid timber with a high gloss black finish, hand turned legs and topped with bianco carrara marble inlaid with brass detail. The project even included the exterior tables which were constructed in solid iroko.
