Check out this new restaurant space in London by Seventh Studio / Yuriy Yumashev / Yuriy Cherebedov / Dmitriy Zhukov. The use of natural materials was what caught our eyes, the wood paneling, moss and grass walls, glass pendants and white brick walls bring so much texture to the design and great contrast to the site.

Last Friday fashion designer Marc Jacobs presented his Fall/Winter 2015 collection in New York, as per usual the set and runway design was very creative and dramatic as an ode to Diana Vreeland. The show took place at the Park Avenue Armory with a backdrop designed by Stefan Beckman, who was inspired by Jeremiah Goodman paintings of Vreeland’s famous red room.
Here is a look at some of Marc Jacobs most memorable runways shows including this years red and dark design.
For today’s Monday Morning Photo’s we have a look at the beautiful work by Tony and Emmy award winning set designer Derek McLane. For the third year in a row he has been tasked with creating a dazzling backdrop for Hollywood’s biggest night, the Oscars. The Academy has used a floating stars or Oscars motif for a number of years, but this year’s set took it up a notch with the use of red and gold into the color scheme that popped without distracting from the talent in the foreground, the use of lighting was also a key element, with the use of more than 500 Edison lightbulbs throughout the stage.

This is Shanghai’s first Gastropub Liquid Laundry, a newly opened venue in the former French concession Shanghai. The space was designed by Hannah Churchill and covers a huge floor space but cleverly allows for a seamless flow from the lounge bar to informal and formal dining areas that are intertwined between the pizza oven, the DJ’s decks and onsite brewery.
Here are a few photos via Seth Powers, we love the mix use of materials and lighting (although we might be a bit over the use of neon lights in interiors)
