Article Design Studio combines Neapolitan influences with design classics
Located in the beautiful Italian Gardens, within Kensington Gardens, which is managed by The Royal Parks’ charity, the Italian Garden café is a new casual dining project designed by interior architecture studio, Article.
The surroundings which feature a strong sense of Italian heritage, such as the central rosettes carved in Carrara marble and the Portland stone and white marble Tazza Fountain, served as inspiration for Article's direction.
Article's Creative Director Katy Manolescue shares, “We wanted to create a modern reflection of Italian design; championing the mid-century era and the works of Gio Ponti in particular, the great father of Italian design whose work transcends architecture, furniture, product and ceramics. His designs are showcased at the café so perfectly and we added to this with a selection of new furniture including an edit from VG&P and Emu.”
