The Rib Room
Location: Knightsbridge, London
A key destination for the Knightsbridge diner, the Rib Room Bar & Restaurant has recently undergone an extensive makeover at the hands of renowned interior designer Martin Brudnizki.
The celebrated restaurant was recently awarded three AA rosettes, the evident quality of this dining experience is reflected in the new luxurious interior design; where velvet drapery, dark wood finishes and unique brass ironmongery provide a reserved and private dining experience.
HAF International were asked by contractor Beck Interiors to prepare a schedule for the project, HAF were chosen because of the bespoke nature of the ironmongery designs created by Mr Brundnizki, proven experience of producing a high-end finished product was essential to the success of the project .
New bespoke pull handles
The original handle designs were passed to HAF for manufacture, with the architectural ironmonger working closely with the design team in the creation of the unique brass and leather pull handles. HAF first visited the designer with sample finishes for approval, and subsequently with a sample of the proposed handle, complete with hand stitched green leather. The designer specified an un-lacquered satin brass finish, which when exposed to the elements will age beautifully over time. In combination with the leather grip, which again will age gracefully, the handle takes on a timeless look.
A new finish for existing feature pull handles
HAF were also asked to re-finish the existing feature ‘R’ pull handles, bringing the entrance door in-line with the finish of the new ironmongery and match the rest of the new interior.
