Sketch restaurant by David Shrigley, London – UK

June 14th, 2014 by retail design blog

British artist David Shrigley has re-imagined the eclectic London restaurant, Sketch, with primarily pink interiors and his own personal drawings, which line the surrounding walls. The site hosts 239 new works, the largest presentation of original Shrigley drawings to date. The illustrations thematically consider motifs of life, death and beyond, which offer points of departure for diners to muse on. The exhibition continues onto the restaurant tables with bespoke ceramic tableware — manufactured by British brand Caverswall — featuring Shrigley’s trademark mordant drawings and texts, making the meal itself a site-specific sculptural work.

The gallery at Sketch has been refurbished by Paris based architect and designer India Mahdavi, who has created a backdrop for Shrigley’s artwork. A monochromatic pink canvasses the walls and velvet-covered furniture surrounds the tabletops. The classic design creates a deliberately playful contrast with the witty art works. Additionally, fashion designer Richard Nicoll has created bespoke uniforms for the restaurant staff to wear — for women: the design is a play on Nicoll’s signature t-shirt dress silhouette; for men: a grey boiler-suit.
