Petite Friture will bring playful graphics and whimsical installations to Fora for Clerkenwell Design Week

Words by 

French design editors Petite Friture will be taking over Fora's Central Street space for Clerkenwell Design Week 2018. 

Petite Friture will take over the Palatino restaurant at co-working space Fora during Clerkenwell Design Week. The French design editor will be creating an imaginative atmosphere in the space featuring Petite Friture’s lighting and furniture pieces.

Fora’s Central Street facade will be transformed with French illustrator Lisa Laubreaux’s playful graphics that depict precious, jovial scenes of ‘holiday moments’, and the designer’s Memphis-inspired ‘Jetlag’ pattern which was first presented as wallpaper at January’s Maison et Objet.

Inside, visitors to the restaurant will find a display of French designer Constance Guisset’s ‘Vertigo’ pendant lights, one of Petite Friture’s most recognisable designs. The lobby space will be transformed with clusters of the brand’s ‘Chains’ lighting garlands designed by Sylvain Willenz, Guisset’s cloud-like ‘Nubilo’ sofas, and an array of smaller design objects.
