New restaurants keep opening in Moscow amid the corona pandemic. This challenging project was completed successfully when Moscow’s lockdown restrictions were at their most severe.
Our job was to plate the bottom parts of the marble tabletops and trim the edges with brass on 23 marble tables designed and manufactured in collaboration with #unizaro for the MOLLUSCA restaurant at 19/6 Bolshoi Kozikhinsky Lane. http://mollusca.ru/index.html. We plated the rims and the undersides of the marble tables with patinated polished brass. All joints on the brass parts were welded and polished into the perfect semblance of a solid piece of brass. The brass parts were given a protective coat to prevent oxidation and conserve the original look for years.
The endeavor in question was the meticulous transformation of the marble tabletops, a project that would grace the elegant interior of the MOLLUSCA restaurant, nestled at 19/6 Bolshoi Kozikhinsky Lane. The artistic synergy between skilled craftsmen and the creative minds at #unizaro culminated in the design and production of 23 marble tables that would become the focal point of this gastronomic establishment.
Our team was entrusted with the task of elevating these tables to the pinnacle of aesthetic sophistication. To achieve this, we embarked on a journey to plate the bottom portions of each marble tabletop with a glistening layer of patinated polished brass. This endeavor was not merely an exercise in aesthetics; it was a meticulous fusion of form and function.
The marriage of marble and brass was executed with precision and care. Every joint on the brass components was seamlessly welded and painstakingly polished, crafting an illusion of indivisibility, as if the brass and marble were born of a single design. This marriage not only captivated the eye but also promised durability, ensuring that the tables would stand the test of time.
As the finishing touch, the brass components received a protective coating, guarding against the ravages of oxidation and the passage of years. This measure served to preserve the original, resplendent allure of the brass, allowing it to retain its lustrous brilliance for generations to come.
In the heart of Moscow’s tumultuous period, where uncertainty loomed, the successful completion of this project stood as a testament to the resilience of craftsmanship, innovation, and the indomitable spirit of creativity. These tables, with their exquisite blend of marble and brass, would now beckon patrons to experience the culinary delights of MOLLUSCA, an oasis of elegance and artistry amid challenging times.
Stop by MOLLUSCA some time to enjoy exclusive seafood specialties in a luxury setting we have helped to create.
We thank UNIZARO for the pictures and for letting us work on this project.
