British Airways i360

Café & Restaurant

Heralding new heights for Brighton’s coastline, the new British Airways i360 observation tower is designed by Marks Barfield Architects, who also designed the iconic London Eye. Working with the architects, Inside Out provided a full furnishing solution for the attraction’s dedicated food and beverage offering, the West Beach Bar & Kitchen.

Inspiration for the venue has been derived from the vibrant local culture of Brighton and Hove, channelling an eclectic beach hut vibe which includes art from local artists.

From Inside Out’s UK workshop, existing full circle booths have been reupholstered in ocean-hued blue fluting and refitted with weathered-style limed oak wooden panels, which are reminiscent of the seaside. Bespoke marshmallow stools also handmade in the UK feature in an array of red, purple and yellow, dotted around the bar with Cocktail lounges and sofas in matching fabrics to the local art on the walls.

From the main dining room, Thea and Karavan chairs mingle with Italian made Jeeves armchairs in a mixture of natural oak and white-washed wood stains. Complementing the dining chairs, the solid wood table tops continue the weathered look with limed oak finished table tops upon black metal bases.
