Damien Hirst with some help from English chef Mark Hix has recently opened an art-themed restaurant in his new Newport Street Gallery in Vauxhall, London.
“Pharmacy 2 combines two of my greatest passions: art and food,” says Hirst of the new project.
As he did with the previous restaurant, he has fully expressed his love for pharmaceuticals in the design of the restaurant space. The design oozes his reputable creativity and attention to detail.
The multi-millionaire artist, Hirst’s art work decorates the interior walls of the restaurant. The rear wall also houses a large medicine cabinet with real items.
Large glass stained windows draw the eye in with a colour explosion of red and blue. We like how skilfully the pill motifs are used throughout. The bar area, the floors, the chairs enjoy a bit of medicinal therapy. A great example of thoughtful design which is not clinical but uniquely tasteful.
His aim to revive the original Notting Hill restaurant, Pharmacy is incredibly commendable.
