In September 2015, the incredibly talented set designer and all round good guy, Simon Costin contacted us to see if we would be able to design and make a series of tables for the old Compton Street institution that is Balans. Simon’s idea behind the layout was to divide the restaurant into three sections with their own bespoke feel. At the front, he wanted the space to be tailored toward bistro dining and drinking. Simon asked us to graffiti these tables with the names of thespians, drag queens and pop references that draw on the areas rich history.
The mid-section was designed to be a more upmarket dining area and further to the back a more luxurious and intimate drinking space.
