Our work

Chai Ki, London,

DesignLSM, have recently completed the interior design for Chai Ki in Canary Wharf. This is the second restaurant for owner Rohit Chugh – the first being Roti Chai located on Portman Mews South, London.

Chai Ki is seen as a development from the original restaurant, creating striking new interiors with influences from Roti Chai. Other inspirations were drawn from New York and the space itself – which consists of high ceilings and dramatic areas; ideal for our designers to create a visual arresting interior.

The design style is urban, with raw finishes and detailed design features. Each area within the space has its own character and personality; yet has been designed to ensure visual harmony across the whole scheme. Subtle features nod to the Indian heritage; such as the waiter stations that are reminiscent of street based Chai stands and the headlight feature on the walls that are seen on motorcycles in Indian cities.
