Singapore-based firm Emma Maxwell Design has created an exquisite interior for new Beijing restaurant Florentina

Shortlisted at the prestigious Bar & Restaurant Design Awards 2015, the project is inspired by the graphic grey and white of Florentine architecture. Chevron patterned Carrera marble flooring plays against a ceiling of cloud wallpaper and a host of boldly coloured furnishings to create a sophisticated and elegant dining area.

Lighting played a huge part in the project too with the hanging lights being made of delicate hand-blown glass bubbles. About the feeling she wanted to create in the space, Maxwell says, “The light continually shifting on marble surfaces, the cloudy skies and the resonance of the buildings and structures in Florence hugely influenced me. The challenge of interpreting the magical alchemy that a city contains is something that I relish. For Florentina, I wanted to transport customers to another place, a place of light, illusion, beauty and contrasts"
