We created the design for Tashan, merging traditional Indian craft with an innovative, digital design. The result is a warm, sultry space with a relaxed lounge, a high-dining area, a communal dining table overlooking the open kitchen and last but not least; private dining in the wine room. A new spatial concept was inherent in the innovative cuisine proposed; intimate zones were created, each with their own dining experience. These “rooms” are both separated and connected through laser cut patterned open wood screens and oblique angles. The private dining room can be closed by padded leather doors, providing a calm and quiet space, perfect for a special evening. The communal dining room provides the “in the kitchen” effect and is perfect for both large groups and individuals ready to meet other foodies.

Highlighted is the communal bathroom with glass bead walls and a large black shared washbasin in the middle. Indirect light, differentiated ceiling levels, clear, translucent and colored glass panels all help to create a very special atmosphere, hovering between a precious past and an exciting future.
