Based in London and New York City, Martin Brudnizki has created many well-known interiors around the world. Specialized in restaurants, bars, hotels, and private clubs, Brudnizki has been described as “one of the best restaurant and hotel designers of his generation”.
Featuring a sexy restaurant and bar inside, The Britely opened its doors on April 2, unveiling a new social club that transcends both time and place. The new club in Los Angeles also features a rooftop lounge equipped with poolside seating and amazing views of the skyline.
“For me to be able to design something as abstract as that, I needed to find and build a narrative: What is hyper-glamorous in West Hollywood? Of course, it was Hollywood itself, the film industry, and those incredibly evocative images that came through during the late 1940s and ’50s.” – Martin Brudnizki
Brudnizki sheathed the rooms in a high-gloss lacquer and gilded the ceilings with mirrored accents, in order to give the indoor restaurant a cinematic quality.
“The reason we picked the pink walls is because the reflection of that color will make everyone look 2o years younger.” – Martin Brudnizki
Martin Brudnizki was able to give the room sparkle and shine by swathing the space in reflective materials and bouncing the light from the custom fixtures around the space. Designed to offer the illusion of a starlet’s vanity mirror, the main bar has two dramatic chandeliers looking like they are almost on top of the marble countertop.
