American roadside design ethos

The design ethos of American roadside diners comes to Ladbroke Grove this week with Cafeteria, John Torode’s latest restaurant. The restaurant’s interiors were created by architect Wells Mackereth, with graphics, including identity, print material and signage by Bon Bon, London – the new incarnation of Mark Harper Design. A double-height, glass-fronted entranceway has been introduced to a space originally designed by Foreign Office Architects in 1998. Inside, hanging constellations of spherical spun-fibreglass loom over custom-made furniture housing the waiter’s station and banquette seating. White plastic Eames chairs and white leather Plank stools contrast with the black concrete floor. Cafeteria is at 124 Ladbroke Grove, London W11.
