“…referencing the building’s nautical form, the hotel encapsulates the elegance of a 1920s transatlantic ship, with copper cladding leading guests inside an expansive reception lobby. building on the extensive metal finishes already in place, a matrix of brasswork permeates the design, framing each bedroom door and eventually morphing into a rooftop cocktail bar that boasts views across the British capital.” – Designboom
Their first US commission was at Himitsu, a cocktail lounge in Atlanta, GA. FastCo Design comments on this, “Himitsu is the brainchild of entrepreneur Farshid Arshid, who wanted to create is a “civilized” experience that does away with the annoyances of destination cocktail bars. To design the space, he tapped Design Research Studio—the interior design and architecture studio of famed British designer (and occasional rock star) Tom Dixon.”
