These ceramic tiles for The Butchery by Marble were inspired by the natural overlap of Japanese Shibari style rope binding to evoke the feeling of meat as art.
Marble Restaurant Branding
This is a series of illustrations of bulls hidden in Marble. Done with Grid Worldwide for the branding of Marble (Meat & Flame Enthusiasts) in Rosebank, Johannesburg.
We designed these bespoke bar panels and cornices to evoke flayed muscle fibers in a way that makes meat beautiful. Damien Grievas made them using supawood enamel and glaze to build up the bronze effect. Marble Restaurant is in Rosebank, Johannesburg and this project was done with Grid Worldwide.
Signature tapestry, carpet and ceiling projection artwork for the interior of Saint Restaurant at The Marc in Sandton. Project done with Grid Worldwide.
Dropping your habits
Let go of what you think you know. Question everything. Assume nothing. Unlearn. Anti Est is a movement away from habit and indoctrination and towards a new way of viewing the world – with honest, open eyes. Anti Est asks you to Unlearn so you can learn anew. In a world characterised by consumerism and “mass produced” opinions, it encourages authenticity of thought and conversation, and embraces the craft culture with unexpected, hand-made food and drink. Since it opened in Braamfontein, a previously derelict neighbourhood on the fringe of the Johannesburg city centre, it has become a catalyst for change – encouraging people from the Northern suburbs to rethink where they socialise. And they’ve done so in droves, abandoning the comfort of their usual stomping grounds for a place that sets the stage for a re-examination of what society and years of habit have dictated to be true.
