Yesterday, we relaunched Luke Dale-Roberts’ The Test Kitchen website, in time for the World’s Best 50 Restaurants award ceremony. The Test Kitchen was singled out as the winner of the “One to Watch” award.
The concept, design and build was completed within one week. Whilst many restaurant websites obsess about the finished plate, the concept was to showcase the full experience of dining at The Test Kitchen.
What makes The Test Kitchen special is the distinctive industrial space and that the chefs perform in the open kitchen. The old website was white and minimal, but in truth The Test Kitchen is dark, rich and earthy.
The responsive website design uses a background incorporating the oxidised mild steel table tops used in the dining room with a restaurant ‘watermark’.
The warmth in both the dining room and the website is created by the felt pendant lighting that features strongly.
