The café/bar of the Bernie Grant Arts Center – inside Tottenham’s green conservation area in Haringey, London – was designed by Morag Myerscough with color front and center, using it to define spaces.
The project is meant to promote, support and give artists local visibility. Two artists were directly involved in furnishing the venue: Luke Morgan designed the tables and Yemi Awosile the gallery seating. The entire space was decorated with recovered pieces and by painting and renovating rough surfaces. The outcome is a playful and lively space full of plants, high-energy hues, ceramic tiles, textiles, new and vintage furniture and recycled elements.
