Design Research Studio, Tom Dixon’s architectural and interior arm, unveil their first State-side hospitality project in the form of Himitsu, a cocktail lounge-bar in Atlanta.
Inspired by Japanese mixology and American prohibition, Himitsu is a darkly theatrical speak-easy, peppered with the rich colours and textures inspired by the emotion and drama captured in Todd Murphy’s painting King of Birds. Himitsu (meaning Secret in Japanese) is the sister bar to popular Atlanta sushi haunt, Umi Sushi.
The Mondrian Hotel, part of the Morgans Hotel Group, originally hails from New York. At Sea Containers the hotel chain sought to brings a bold new energy to London, blending the style and sophistication of the boutique brand with Southbank’s eclectic vibe.
