Type Murals! Wishbone Restaurant by Shed

Shed designed the London-based fried chicken eatery, Wishbone, located in Brixton’s indoor market. The look and feel of the space was inspired by where “some of the most exciting restaurants overlap with green grocers and wig shops.” Basically you have a vibrant, type-based design centered around wood and an eye-catching color palette. Let’s hope the chicken tastes just as good.

Shed’s overall vision included graffiti and agricultural elements to reflect the menu that’s served. They brought in graffiti artists Paintshop Studio to complete all of the bright typography throughout.

The colorful graffiti set with the oak and galvanized steel make for a cohesive space.

The furniture was inspired by animal feeders, perfect for the patrons feeding on chicken.

Upstairs is a more casual environment, meant to reflect that of a chicken shed.

Dining tables for two line the windows and walls, while bigger groups can sit at the “feeder tables” in the center.
