Knitting Factory Entertainment contracted NEW THEME to develop a modern interior and exterior for their North Hollywood restaurant Bow & Truss. The interior was developed to seamlessly open up to the exterior spaces, and reflect the restaurant’s Spanish menu with a Moorish tone in the interior work. The center rectangular bar incorporates both light and dark elements with embedded light fixtures in the translucent bottom half, reminiscent of a Middle Eastern jali lattice arrangement. The exterior patio features NEW THEME’s craftsmanship work with the interplay of brick walls and darker wood furnishings, which aims to achieve a Spanish ranch or mission aesthetic. Since its opening, the space has even become a popular filming location for television and commercial productions, as the interior bar forms a central node of social and spatial organization.
