The Gallerie the main restaurant of the eclectic and emblematic Sketch space in London has been completely renovated by the interior designer India Mahdavi recreating a provocative space of bourgeois atmosphere strangely tinged with pink. As if Barbie had decided to dedicate to the decoration to fall in love again with the good of Kent. The project, in addition, has been awarded with the distinction to the best space in the United Kingdom by the Restaurant & Bar Design Awards last year.

The space serves as a backdrop of the work of artists who renovate the walls periodically, as it was conceived at the time. So every visit to The Gallerie is a surprise. The images show the work of the British artist David Shrigley: 239 works that make up the largest group exhibited by this artist. The classic and almost bourgeois design of the restaurant invites to experience a deliberately playful contrast with works of art; nothing is what it seems.

India Mahdavi was born in Tehran to an Egyptian mother and Iranian father, spent her childhood between Massachusetts, New York, Heidelberg, Vence and Paris. The designer is like her style: polyglot and polychrome. Mahdavi graduated in architecture, industrial design, graphic design and furniture design, before becoming the artistic director of Christian Liaigre for seven years. He studied in Paris in 1999 and worked on his first projects in London, New York, Miami, Hong Kong, Las Vegas, Milan, Sydney and Mexico. His signature has become a reference for renowned hotels and restaurants such as Condesa in Mexico, Rivington in New York, Monte Carlo Beach in Monaco, the Coburg bar and the Hélène Darroze restaurant in the Connaught in London, suites in the Claridge in London, Hôtel Thoumieux in Paris, the Hôtel du Cloître in Arles, Café Français in Paris.
