Tides Restaurant (102 Norfolk at Delancey Street). In this small restaurant (420 sq ft) LTL explored different configurations of bamboo. The booths, seats and tables are all made from different combinations of bamboo. The ceiling is formed by over 120,000 bamboo skewers embedded into a back-lit accoustical ceiling. The skewers are composed to produce a topographical effect, evoking sea grass, albeit inverted.

Architects Lewis.Tsurumaki.Lewis also designed the Fluff bakery at 751 Ninth Ave. in Manhattan. Not crazy about the bakery. Nice design for a coffeeshop or restaurant, but it doesn’t have the right vibe for a bakery in my opinion.

    Hmmm……looks interesting. I’ll check both out and report back with my review! ;)

    I agree…a bakery needs to be warmer and more inviting.
