Step Inside bar by Giles Miller
London designer Giles Miller installed this bar for Inside World Festival of Interiors at a former petrol station as part of Clerkenwell Design Week in London last week.
Called Step Inside, the installation by Chetwoods Architects featured furniture by local designers suspended from scaffolding overhead.
Miller covered the bar in 1500 yellow ceramic tiles, laid at 20 degrees to the curved MDF surface to create two opposing swirls.
The bar was topped with grey quartz by Cosentino while the tiles were made in the UK and provided by Materials Lab.
