Conceived of as an extension of the adjacent neighborhood staple, this design and build project in Williamsburg provided a dedicated dining space for the Knitting Factory Brooklyn. The interior features a salvaged basketball court floor, a three-pointed mahogany table and a 7-foot vintage globe light hovering above the prohibition-era bar. The wall-surfaces are collages of antique patent illustrations for musical instruments, layered with vintage sewing patterns, further referencing the music venue next door.
