Boa, the eight-month-old interior design and architecture practice set up by 1994 Royal College of Art graduates Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby, has completed its first major project. The Crescent, a wine bar on London’s Fulham Road, is located in a former Chinese restaurant. The 70 000 facelift includes graphics by Sodano Aboud and furniture from Pallucco and by Philippe Starck. The client, wine shipper Domaine Direct, has now commissioned Boa to convert a warehouse into a wine storage area, offices and a tasting room.
Design outfit Studio Texture has led the redesign, keeping the previous Pentagram-designed logo but introducing new colours, typography and tone of voice.
