Walrus and Tusk, bar design

No Chintz are delighted to be continuing their relationship with MAD Developments, owners of Infamous Diner, with the refurbishment of the Northern Quarter based bars – Walrus and Tusk.

The brief was to focus on a sophisticated, warm, and high-end look, using predominantly copper and leather in Walrus, with more reclaimed wooden materials through to the bar area in Tusk.

In Walrus we used different variations of copper; bespoke cut sheet scalloped tiles, beaten copper sheeting, mirrored copper tiles, powder coated copper bar fixtures and blush copper leather on the booth seating. The floor was tiled in wooden effect porcelain tiles to offset these finishes and we implemented leather woven screens to separate the window booths.

Tusk was given a more rustic african inspired overhaul with heavy use of tribal wall art, reclaimed wooden finishes and african inspired dressings including our three Zebra heads! Basket-weave patterns are used heavily, through to the refurbishment of the toilets also. Lighting is kept warm with atmospheric touches throughout both schemes and also play on the wooden/leather and copper materials used one each area.
