Glass Studio dinnerware decor for Kangan at Westin Mumbai Garden City
Kangan is located on the 18th floor of Westin Mumbai Garden City, and offers gourmet Indian cuisine with flavors of Peshawar region and notes of Middle East. Kangan is centered on the concept of traditional Indian family dining, and offers tasting platters and an open kitchen which allows guests to peek into the culinary process. The culinary offer stems from traditional dishes such as Jain food items, kebabs and spicy vegetable dishes interpreted in modern way and presented on contemporary dinnerware.
Described as “cozy, relaxed and vibrant”, restaurant’s décor features floor-to-ceiling windows that offer stunning view of the city and the interior centers on simple basic forms and warm brown, red and beige colors. Glass Studio was guided by Kangan’s sleek and elegant style to create dinnerware that would accompany the menu and highlight the modern twist of the décor. Dinnerware designs include predominantly red glass dinnerware and contain items such as glass dining plates, soup plates, main course plates, dessert plates and bowls. Designs feature simple round shapes and the accents were placed on the intensity of color rather than patterns. To accommodate the tradition of Indian cuisine, Glass Studio created custom made dinnerware items, such as a sauce stand with small glass bowls for sauces and chutneys to accompany kebab holder with glass base.
