The best restaurants often sport a warm and inviting vibe. Of course, as one of India’s premier hospitality designers, Sumessh Menon knows that well. And the latest project by his firm, Sumessh Menon Associates, is a true study in restaurant design. Vibrant hues, earthy materials and eye-catching elements come together to form Bengaluru restaurant 1522’s first-ever outpost in Mumbai.

The restaurant is divided into three separate areas: semi-outdoor, indoor and rooftop. Upon entering, visitors are greeted by the lush interiors, which lend the space an instantly refreshing feel. Menon has resorted to the use of earthy materials and raw interiors infused with live trees and planters hanging from bright blue trusses, which adds to the green design vibe.

“One sees a lot of customization and creative intricacy formed purely out of detailed spatial planning. The amalgamation of a plethora of natural materials like wood, terracotta, stone and cane, along with well-planned biophilic design elements, truly makes this space the perfect urban oasis for relishing your favourite culinary delights,” says Menon of his latest work.
