When it came to fitting-out its derelict south London property, interior designer 2LG Studio went for its own interpretation of po-mo for its kitchen/diner/work space. Once it had decided on characterful over-sized arches for the storage units, it chose Caesarstone’s pale, soft-grey Cloudburst Concrete for the worktops and backsplash. There are nine colours in the firm’s ‘Metropolitan Collection’, all inspired by natural colours and textures. So while there’s clearly a form of Post Modern here, worktops-wise the excesses of Memphis still look some way off.
