Yesterday while we were wandering around with our Forecasting tutor, she brought us into a place called sketch. Now I have tried to put it into words, but the history from their website does it best:
"The triple dream of launching a centre, a “lieu” or destination place, for food, art and music has been realised by Mourad “Momo” Mazouz and his team of chefs and designers over two expansive floors of a converted 18th century building in Conduit Street, Mayfair, London. sketch is a complex and unique site. Conceived by French master chef Pierre Gagnaire and restaurateur Mazouz, it has attracted unprecedented media reaction for its myriad food, drink and entertainment styles since it opened in December 2002. Gagnaire's culinary genius has inspired the menus throughout sketch. His eponymous Michelin three-starred Paris restaurant has a distinctive menu style, which Gagnaire had adapted for sketch. Executed by his acolytes, the food is imaginative, bold, ground-breaking and delicious. Theses two visionaries have come together to create sketch..."
It was a really cool amazing space to be in. Every part of it was completely different than teh room next door and there were interactive art installations everywhere. The were even bathrooms that looked like the pods from Gaga's Bad Romace video!
how crazy is that? each pod was an individual toilet!
The rest of the space was just as crazy...
the gallery dining room
artists exhibit their work on these video screens all around the room. it changes every few weeks
chair fused to the wall, anyone?
I don't even have any pictures of the front bar or the other bathrooms... but we decided before the Fashion Weekend event were coming here to have a glass of wine! We'll be chic and sophisticated for one night. I can't WAIT!
