Taj Hotels, Bombay Brasserie, London

Established in 1982, The Bombay Brasserie in Kensington, London, is famed for it’s authentic bombay and indian cuisine.

Republic of Living worked with Design LSM and Chef Sriram Aylur to develop a bespoke furniture package for the newly designed interior.  

We took Design LSM’s original design concepts, and worked them up in to a drawing package, which we then developed into working prototypes.  The whole design team, including Chef Sriram Aylur, who remained very close to the design process throughout, came to the factory in Portugal to see the early prototypes and finishes in order that any changes or tweaks could be made before we went to full production.

The experience of being with the products in their rawest form helps give a real sense of ownership of the finished products to the restaurant.  

We produced the entire loose furniture package for the restaurant, with the exception of some of the chairs in the covered courtyard area which were sourced dierectly from Mumbai.

Bombay Brasserie won Best Restaurant at the Hotelympia Awards 2015
