Minimally Luxurious

LIT – Bar and Restaurant is one of Delhi’s most happening socialising destinations. A mix between luxury and minimalism, it employs a design with a different perspective. The space integrates the brand identity within the space to create a holistic design language.

The entry is marked by a splayed grey portal which houses the copper finished logo complimented by wooden louvers and a green wall on either side. The louvers are placed asymmetrically to create a play of light and shadows.

The interior has been differentiated by a fusion of finishes and materials which complement one another. Once we enter the space we are immediately drawn by the double height volume and accent wall which highlights the entire bar. The back lit metal mesh with bronze finished box displays create a backdrop to the entire space.

The glamour quotient of the restaurant is the green marble clad bar with copper accent lines breaking the mass. The bar display is defined by bronze finished solid partitions which turn up onto the ceiling with mirrors between them. The complete bar is backlit with light passing through the milky white acrylic.

A fusion between symmetry and asymmetry has been created by the copper metal strips which run through the concrete surfaces. The strips act as detail highlighters during the night, with a glow effect whenever the light falls on them. The private dining areas are marked by teal colour walls and are situated at the ends of both floors. The fishbone pattern adds to the overall space, breaking away from the solid paint and concrete finished panelling.

Grid of mirrors has been used on the ceiling of the double height volume accented by bronze finished frames. The mirrors create an illusion of space and also help in bouncing of the light during performances. The DJ console is strategically positioned next to the double height volume, for DJ to connect with his audience while performing.

The fabrics of the seating are complimentary to the colour combination used within the bar with the exception of the rose gold sofas which break the monotony of the colours used. All the design elements have been strategically employed throughout the space to create the right mood and ambience for the visitors, thus making it one of the best choices for hangouts.
