This summer a touch of Chinese sophistication arrives in Battersea in the form of Red Pocket Restaurant at Hotel Verta by Rhombus.
Located minutes from Chelsea and Sloane Square, Red Pocket will combine a chic and contemporary décor with a warm and exotic atmosphere that people will travel from near and far to visit.
Red Pocket is the symbol of luck and prosperity in Chinese and the design will transport guests to the heart of Oriental culture. Designed by the talented Kane Chan, a colour palate of red, black and gold will be used throughout, as they are the traditional colours of good fortune and wealth in Eastern civilization. All of the restaurant’s graphics, from the printed menus to the logo are unique and combine classical Chinese thread space patterns and typography.
Red Pocket’s design fuses both modern and ancient aspects of Chinese culture and features include: artwork, such as modern paintings of the Peking Opera and The Last Emperor of the Qing Dynasty. A large statue of a meditating Buddha made from Chinese elm and a marble Buddha head brings a calming element to the room.
Handpicked furniture includes an ancient Tibetan cabinet made from woodwith an intricate design and a nineteenth century wooden stool from the Shandong Province that oozes rustic charm.
