Chandigarh’s Tin Tin Restaurant is a labyrinth of geometric pattern

Grids dominate the interiors of this Chandigarh restaurant, which designers Renesā Architecture describe as a ‘mosaic matrix’.

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

Renesa Architecture has complemented the space with leather-upholstered banquettes and dining chairs, both with tubular backs. The chairs are placed around tables that wind through the space, some of which are tucked into light-filled nooks next to windows.

Suspended ceiling panels and rows of saucer-like lights complete the restaurant, lending it a somewhat futuristic feeling that contrasts with the handiwork of stonemasons, who spent months completing Tin Tin’s gridded walls.
