Tengbom designs Kitchen & Table restaurant
Tengbom’s interior design studio is the architect team behind Marcus Samuelsson’s new Kitchen & Table restaurant at Clarion Hotel Amaranten in Stockholm. The restaurant will open to the public this Friday, 16 May.
Hotel Amaranten is currently undergoing extensive renovation of hotel rooms, lobby, relax centre and restaurant. Tengbom is responsible for the interior design of the entire hotel. Kitchen & Table is Clarion Hotel’s international restaurant concept which is run by Swedish master chef and New York resident Marcus Samuelsson. The idea is to combine international flavours and local raw materials in order to offer customers new and exciting taste sensations.
Tengbom has worked intensively and hard with this unique restaurant environment. The design brief was “Africa meets Grandma” to combine with an open and centre-stage kitchen. The interior fittings are mostly specially designed, including tables with an Africa-inspired pattern. A large community table strengthens the feeling of an open, welcoming kitchen. The mix includes glimpses of rustic materials combined with raw surfaces, murals on wood wool boards and details inspired by grandma’s pincushion and nylon stockings!
"The starting point of crossing and mixing different design worlds really triggered the imagination. We sampled freely and produced a plethora of materials and details that evoke different associations depending on who you are. This is to be a meeting place for both young and old in Stockholm. An unpredictable milieu where the more you look, the more you see. Our cooperation with Kitchen & Table has been fast-paced and fun, a journey we have undertaken together. Welcome to experience interior design inspired by Africa/grandma/New York," says Kjerstin Björk, head of Tengbom’s interior design studio in Stockholm.
“We had a tough timetable and ambitious goals for this major investment. So it is gratifying to note that the Tengbom team has been highly successful in creating the genuine Kitchen & Table feeling that provides opportunities for different encounters and unique taste sensations. We are convinced that this restaurant will become a favourite haunt of the residents of Kungsholmen,” says Jessica Castegren, Head of Marketing and Communications at Clarion Hotel,
