Kamala Mills, Mumbai
A casual but classy restobar, its design was conceptualised not only around the theme of horse racing, but also other competitive derbys like roller derby and demolition derby. The blue and white angular stripes against the gray tiles creates a vibrant floor pattern, inspired by the striped awning at the racecourse. The red bricks create an illusion of an exposed wall with plaster and the LED lights illuminate the slogan “Ride Your Knight” on the wall. All the artefacts like the shadow boxes,
horse bits and racing paraphernalia are custom made. The walls and columns are sculpted using reclaimed wood panels with colorful bands that are usually seen in stables and they add warmth to the space. Some distinctive design elements include the metallic horse horse shoe with bulbs on the DJ back, the locker room inspired bar apron and bar back and the plants suspended from wire meshes at different levels.
