We’re proud to present photographs of one of our Stone Monoliths installed as part of a wider floral entrance design created by celebrated Japanese artist Satoshi Kawamoto in this prestigious London restaurant and bar, Pantechnicon. This large granite standing stone is just over 700mm tall and adds to the wonderful ambience in this Japanese themed space. Set in a beautiful Grade II Listed Georgian building, Pantechnicon focuses on creativity and excellent craftmanship in it’s eight different spaces spread over six floors.
The monolith at Pantechnicon is part of a fairly substantial installation. Surrounded by a selection of small granite boulders, the structure is filled with small slate chippings and a Welsh Slate reservoir surround completes the natural stone requirements. Careful planting and moss help this display stand out as a really stunning interior feature.
“As the installation is for a Japanese restaurant, I found it fitting to draw inspiration from traditional patterns found on kimonos, particular those that use clouds. These cloud patterns symbolise the admiration for nature, along with representing notions of hope, change, impermanence and proximity to Gods.”Satoshi Kawamoto
