Handcrafted feature lighting and bespoke tables for a recently opened restaurant in Croydon for chain Nando’s. Working closely with the architect and client during the design and manufacture phase to help create a truly one of a kind space.
At over 16 metres in length and over 3 metres wide the restaurants bespoke feature light is one of the largest structure we have created.
Often likened to the incredible Blue Whale skeleton that resides in Londons Natural History museum, the piece has been handcrafted from sustainably sourced English Oak and solid brass.
The central spine has been constructed from hand turned Oak with each section being assembled at varying degrees to create the flowing shape throughout the ceiling of the restaurant. Solid brass tubes with hand turned Oak end caps provide discreet housing for the structures electrics.
For this project the Forest & Maker team also crafted the majority of the bespoke tables found throughout the restaurant, all out of sustainably sourced Character Oak. These pieces were crafted in a range of sizes, and featured gentle chamfered edges. All hand finished in a light walnut stain to match the Architects vision for the space.
