Diespeker & Co contributed to chic new restaurant Osh in Knightsbridge.
Osh is in the heart of Knightsbridge and has been designed as a classy destination combining glitz, glamour and exclusivity, with a members area and private dining. Billed as a central Asian inspired restaurant and bar that brings a taste of The Silk Route to London, the food at Osh is an enticing mix of Middle Eastern and Eastern Europe cuisine.
Diespeker contributed a striking bespoke resin terrazzo floor for the bar area. The brief called for a bold pattern; a range of samples playing with colourways and shapes were created by the bespoke specialists at Diespeker’s Bermondsey factory before the final design was agreed.
This was a rhombus style shape demarked by black resin terrazzo and infilled with a poured cream base with brown aggregate for a very distinct style.
Diespeker prepared the existing ply with a fibreglass layer. Strips of 90mm bespoke-made black terrazzo were cut to length to form the rhombus pattern. This was an intricate process as the site team had to ensure that the shapes were regular within the boundaries of the flooring. Once the shapes were formed, the cream terrazzo was poured in situ. The team also fixed skirting created from the same black terrazzo as the floor.
The finished floor contributes to the attractive ambience of the bar area, which enjoys subtle hues of brown, grey and copper.
