Designed by mumbai-based firm sameep padora and associates, the ‘indigo deli’, a delicatessen and dine-in restaurant transforms a mundane retail space within the palladium mall in mumbai, india. denying the rigid geometries of the mall context, an undulating and interlocking structure swoops above the tables within the dining area. combining the qualities of a dome and surface, the hybrid form employs the structural strengths of both applications. the wooden armature is formed with rough textured plywood, contrasting the sleek copper lighting fixtures and built in details.

The design-build project began as a parametric exploration during the design process. manufacturing of the unique sections began with CNC routing and systematic assemblage. once connected, the element was hung from the overhead RCC slab from threaded steel rods which have been affixed into a double thickness vertical plywood panel. this connection allows for accurate leveling through the entire length of the interior.
