Product • By Yellow Goat DesignImplosion


It might resemble the sparks from metal grinder but the spark here is not coming from a grinding wheel. Instead it is a burst of renewal frozen in time. Shades of metallic aluminum blades are positioned in a precise angle with each other, lit up by LED bipins between. More

Product • By Yellow Goat DesignArboreal


‘Arboreal’ or ‘living in trees’ is a signature sculptural light of Yellow Goat Design bringing the beauty and harmony of the natural environment into intimate, bespoke and luxurious contemporary design interiors. A stylish light for commercial retail, hotel lighting and casino spaces, Arboreal casts a unique mix of prickled light and shadow around a room in leaf-like patterns, emulating filtered sunlight cast from the native Australian Eucalypt. Featuring thick clumping foliage cut from satin and mirror polished gold and silver aluminium sheet suspended en-masse in clusters using brass rods (optional) and lit by LED, this decorative, large-scale custom chandelier brings the outdoors indoors and accentuates the moveme...

Valextra Flagship Store Milan

Contemporary minimalism meets classical form in this Flos Bespoke lamp, a commission to Michael Anastassiades for the luxury Italian leather-goods house Valextra. The lamp is repeated in seven identical examples within the rigorous John Pawson– designed interiors of Valextra’s Milan flagship on Via Manzoni. Hearkening to the ingenuity and elegance of ancient Greek architecture, Valextra merges modern design with advanced technical mastery.   Vertical LED rods join around a central base to form a freestanding lamp that recalls the geometric parity of platonic forms and the stately fluted columns of the Parthenon.   A symbol of timeless beauty, the lamp’s illuminated columns bring abstraction and clarity to an...

AROMA, Light Installation

Aroma light installation becomes the centrepiece in the reception atrium (50 feet high) of a leading spice manufacturing company. Its design traces the journey of the process of cooking, ascribing to it a tangible, sculptural sense. The 35-feet-tall light installation is suspended from the ceiling, representing beauty in its truest form — mirror finished stainless steel balls, almost glass-like in feel, and floating ‘aroma rings’ of light keep enlarging as they spiral up and spread out. Spices and herbs are depicted as vital determinants in the making of a culinary masterpiece, as they waft gracefully from ‘vessel’ below, pervading the air with flavour and fulfilment.  The light installation essentially,...

Brown's Natural Pet Store

Roll & Patty Restaurant

Liqui are currently undertaking the restaurant design of the brand new Roll & Patty chain set up by one of the largest food and beverage groups in the Middle East. Taking our inspiration from New Orleans and the Louisiana Bayous, the restaurant interior designs reflect an easy-living, relaxed atmosphere; being both bright and fun with a festival feel complementary to the premium fast food offering which includes quality burgers and lobster rolls. Unlike some of the independent restaurants we’ve designed, that are quite individual and aimed at a very specific clientele, the overall design for the chain had to be something that would be appealing to a wider audience. We came up with an engaging look based around easily transferable... More

In the case of Kaafi, as well as the café design, we manufactured furniture and lighting in the UK before shipping it to the Netherlands; while our build team, working to our full specifications, undertook the coffee shop fit-out through to the finished interior. We even provided the complete cafe branding through our sister company Crate47. Kaafi is an independent coffee house in the heart of The Hague. Our coffee connoisseur client wanted a welcoming, cosy and elegant place for his customers to meet, relax or work while enjoying his specialist coffee.... More

Brothers' Karavaev Cafe

Every place in the Brother's Karavaev franchise is a world apart. None resemble the previous one, although they are always recognizable thanks to the retro and industrial touch that all the architects who work in its implementation give it.The most recent is the one you can find in the city of Moscow, next to the Alekséyeyskaya metro station, located in the Alekséi district, which combines materials such as aluminum, laminate or teak wood in the same space.To bring warmth to the different spaces of this gastronomic venue, Marina Bagrova opted for a set of volumes made with anodized aluminum links in brilliant apricot, a subtle and elegant color that navigates between yellow and orange.The eight decorative elements of Kriskadecor include six...
