Chandigarh’s Tin Tin restaurant is a maze of geometric patterns


Grids dominate the interiors of this Chandigarh restaurant, which designers at Renesā Architecture describe as a “mosaic matrix.”

Tin-Tin is a pan-Asian restaurant, located at the foot of a building designed by Le Corbusier. Its cave-like interiors were made using hand-laid Indian stone and terrazzo in shades of jade, brown, white and greige. They create a stunning collage of grilles that wrap around the restaurant’s counter, as well as its many arches.

Renesa Architecture completed the space with leather-covered banquettes and dining chairs, both with tubular backs. Chairs are placed around tables that cross the space, some of which are tucked into bright nooks next to windows.

Suspended ceiling panels and rows of saucer-shaped lights complete the restaurant, giving it a somewhat futuristic feel that contrasts with the handwork of the stonemasons, who spent months finishing the gridded walls of Tin Tin.
