Masala Zone Covent Garden, London, UK

MW Eat own and operate three fine dining restaurants and several Masala Zone establishments across London, which provide sophisticated informal dining with authentic Indian cuisine. dpa has been working closely with MW Eat for the last 15 years, not only are they passionate about authentic food but the group’s passion extends to all aspects of their restaurants, which is what makes them so special.

Featured here are images of Masala Zone Covent Garden with the incredibly colourful Rajasthan puppets dramatically uplit, the vibrant bar with carefully integrated layers of light and focused pools of light on each table exposing the visual delights of the food as it is served. The eclectic decorative chandeliers, small pendants and wall lights add important layers of decorative illumination to the various spaces, and sophistication to the visual experience.

The lighting is grouped with many layers individually controlled to create the perfect balance of drama and warmth throughout the day and into the evening. The lighting changes automatically and with unperceivable fades from one scene to another.
