Zuro was envisioned as a place for guests to find a “home away from home”, whose sparsely decorated interiors lay down just the right ambience to achieve that end. Light is a surprisingly striking aspect of this project; surprising precisely because it is so restrained and reticent in its tenor yet so noticeable.
The designers from Lotus Studio have infused a good mix of natural and artificial light to create a sublime sense of being across all levels of the restaurant. The white brick walls conjure up images of cobble-stoned roads, and the romance of street-side bistros under a Mediterranean sun. Overhanging cylindrical lamps are elegant additions to the interior scheme, with their illuminated tips making them look like celestial creatures. The general tenor of the place is warm, brown and uncluttered.
