HAY AAC25 chair with front upholstery and Pedrali tables in Origin Restaurant, with view over Kensington Gardens.

Origin Restaurant

Viewport Studio’s brief was to create a warm, comfortable and minimal space. The result is a restaurant with a strong connection to the green spaces of the Royal Park directly outside. The expansive windows frame Kensington Gardens, filling the space with natural light. The chosen furnishings add texture and depth, with a limited material palette pairing warmth and tactility to create a welcoming, calm and tranquil space.
