PizzaExpress restaurant, Mumbai – India

March 7th, 2014 by retail design blog

The windows and doorways of Bombay are what the 20 million people in this city watch this 24 hour destination pass by. In front of their eyes are beautiful metalwork screens from the decades, some traditional jaili screens, Art Deco and some more unforgiving modern screens. PizzaExpress have taken this element visible throughout nearby Bandra and incorporated this element into light boxes that scatter the ceiling casting shadows and light across the restaurant. The fabric within helps acoustic levels within the restaurant be reduced to encourage people to have great conversations and experiences within our restaurant.

The booths to the left hand side of the restaurant are broken up with semi private lift shutter doors that have mirror sections inset to allow of a reflected view around the restaurant. The banquettes are all finished with real leather and buttoned back seats give a mid-century design look.

The restaurant continues to display our brand elements here in India with the black and white Bharat tiled floor, natural oak timber and of course selection of marbles. We have added black marble to this restaurant to suit it’s super modern situation within the FIFC building and again using a beautiful white vein Jaipur marble polished with a high gloss finish. The tables are all white and grey veined marble and the chairs all made here in India have a mid-century style with real leather seat pads which pay reference to our 1965 established date.

The pizzaiolo counter sits at the back of the space, raised up for all to see the fresh hot food coming out of the oven. With black feature pendants high lighting the food and giving a modern feel to the kitchen. The large wall in the restaurant is finished with a printed artwork of the screens and grills seen across Bombay to give our guests a true understanding of where we sought inspiration for the design of this modern and sleek restaurant.
