When Chris Corbin and Jeremy King decided to create their latest venture Fischer’s in Marylebone High Street, they were set on achieving the atmosphere of a classic Viennese café. South London marble and terrazzo specialist Diespeker provided the unique, highly polished flooring for design studio Brady Williams.
The flooring specification was primarily for the bar area and borders, as well as the restrooms. Although terrazzo was originally mooted as the main component, the completed design comprises four different materials; three conglomerate and one engineered from Diespeker’s comprehensive standard range, a distinctive mix of colours from the brown, beige, pink and red spectrum.
Specialist features include two high inlaid brass f’s which were cut by water jet and set into the tiles. With a floor space of approximately 160m², much of the flooring was cut at Diespeker’s factory in Bermondsey to a standard 300x300mm, with 30m² bespoke cut to a variety of sizes.
Diespeker Managing Director, John Krause commented: “The major challenge of this project was to achieve the highest standard of finish within a testing install window of only four weeks from commission to completion.” The Diespeker installation team worked meticulously to achieve a quality finish, including a seamless intersection with existing wood flooring in the bar area.
A spokesperson from Brady Williams Studio said: “We are very happy with the overall design and have had fantastic feedback. The flooring was a key factor in ensuring we achieved the classical and luxurious feel of the space, and was beautifully executed by Diespeker. We cannot fault their service throughout the design and installation process.”
