Theo’s Simple Italian
Theo’s Simple Italian is a restaurant located within the Hotel Indigo Kensington. Studio Moren’s interior design team were set the challenge of designing a space that would become a local landmark.
The brief was about re-invigorating the site to become a proactive and integral part of the neighbourhood.
Design elements include checkerboard flooring – a reference to the traditional deli aesthetic – and a play on detail in single elevations – banquettes with quilted leather, tongue and groove vertical panelling with chevron timber panels above.
Glass prismatic lights and industrial style pendants can be adjusted to create ambient settings.
The space also includes a snug area which can be partitioned off with beautiful fluted glass screens and booked for private events and meetings.
