INTERIORS: DOSA BY DOSA
Intricately yet delicately patterned AKDO Heritage Blend porcelain tiles set the tone in the dosa by DOSA entryway – tracing a path from the front door to the bar and kitchen, visually choreographing movement through the space. The flooring dissolves into solid charcoal tile in dining areas, providing contrast to light wood furniture and brass details.
A central communal table encourages shared experiences and creates a sense of hustle and bustle within the dining area. Colorful stools bring life to the light wood communal table, introducing a light and playful feel, and connecting customers to the Dosa brand identity. Custom laser cut wood and metal dividers separate the communal space from a traditional dining area, creating textural and material moments of interest.
Highlighting the meeting of Oakland and Mumbai, two large mural walls commissioned from local artists transport diners from Oakland to India and promise fresh discoveries with every family dinner, casual cocktail, or morning chai.
