I saw the second image on Maison21’s tumblr which is now one of my favorite places to browse for inspiration. Thanks Christian!
So obviously, I had to find out who was awesome enough to make that floor, so I followed the link and viola: PRODUCTORA, A Mexico City based design firm. This project is the CELESTE CHAMPAGNE & TEA ROOM.
“PRODUCTORA was charged with the architectural remodeling of a 1940s-era house for the design of a stylish champagne bar & tea room. The design focused on the creation of one single tile that could generate a variety of patterns and changes in direction throughout the whole floor plan. This piece is repeated over the whole floor and onto the lower parts of the walls, creating a strong dividing horizon between a quiet above and a below charged with information.”
These particular floors are totally glamourous, but because they arent so glossy they are totally understated and cool too. Especially in this case- I feel like the restaurant is really restrained and reigned in, despite the patterned floors. *Just one thing- I could have done without the taxidermy.
