The Brixton Bar and Grill launches this week, with interiors designed by Christian Pond and an identity by designer and illustrator Graeme Duddridge. Based in a Victorian Railway arch in London’s Brixton, the venue will offer tapas from around the world, cocktails and premium drinks. Interiors feature ‘earthy colours, discreet lighting and oak tables’ at the front of the space, before becoming ‘more decadent and eclectic, with rich reds and chandeliers’, says Pond. The identity picks up on the earthy theme and uses a ‘retro modern font’, according to Duddridge.
The museum will work with research studio Forensic Architecture on the installation, which is inspired by this year’s theme of “emotional states”.
