Indian chef Vivek Singh has two London Cinnamon Kitchen eateries and recently opened one in Oxford. The design of his restaurants, by DesignLSM, pairs a minimalist aesthetic with ‘subtle elements reflecting the intricacy and elegance of Indian architecture’. The 370m2 new restaurant has a bar made of Caesarstone’s 5143 White Attica quartz which, says DesignLSM’s Carly Zaver, ‘is extremely durable and stain-resistant compared with natural marbles.’ Whether the material outlives the whims of changing fashion remains to be seen; but perhaps its specification will obviate the need for the charmingly arcane-yet- effective mud-pack marble treatments currently being employed on Shah Jahan’s 1631 Taj Mahal.
