Fitch has created the interiors for Indian restaurant Ophim, which opened last week. Designed to combine features of historic Indian architecture with contemporary British design, the restaurant has a ground floor dedicated to ‘quick eats’, the decor of which uses dark, rich colours, such as oak for the bar and dark green for the leather banquettes. Downstairs the ‘fine’ dining area is laid out with an attention to symmetry, a theme central to Mughal architecture. The areas are divided by silk hanging panels and Jali fretwork panels. The Harem cocktail bar continues the exotic theme with low pipe tables, rich red walls and Indian gold leaf calligraphy.
