felt installation, LongBranch Restaurant, Berkeley, CA
Indigo dyed felt installation for LongBranch Restaurant in Berkeley, CA. The assignment was to create textiles for the walls that would soften and quiet the space, while creating a unifying atmosphere. The dyed horizon lines play off the simple mural painted lies that lie behind, in grey and blues, which reference the lines of the bay horizon and the hills beyond.
The undulating panels surround the dining room, each it's own painting, all connected to form a panorama horizon.The dining experience is intimate and cozy with the sound absorbing quality the felt creates, yielding to an intimate, soothing atmosphere in which to savor the delicious food and conversation.

playing off the sulfur yellow and dry grass, these runners brought the land onto the table, framing the wildflowers and setting off the tableware, like a clock face, marking time.
