TKI was appointed for Interior Design and Design Implementation Supervision for Pintxos, a restaurant located in the Quibla area of Kuwait City.
As part of the Epicure Group's expanding portfolio, Pintxos targeted the city's young and trendy socialites. The design is based around an all-black theme which creates a mysterious, cozy and enticing ambience. The overall vibe of the restaurant is designed to encourage socializing with informal seating and low lighting.
A masterpiece installation of over 2,000 felt cones, each with an LED light, glows just above head level, creating a twilight effect of intimacy and mystery. The tables are individual pieces of hand-cut basalt, with free form felt ottomans for gathering around and sharing the myriad little dishes on offer on the extensive menu.
Each table also weighs in excess of one tone and are totally one of a kind. Furthermore, the bar is a solid piece of basalt, perforated with hundreds of small holes allowing light to shine through, creating a richly-textured focal point.
