The Peninsula New York

Clement Restaurant and Bar


Location: Manhattan, New York 

Year: 2013


Moss & Lam was commissioned by Yabu Pushelberg to create artwork for three distinct areas of the Clement Restaurant in New York’s Peninsula Hotel.

The Main Restaurant: Intricate carving depicting a whimsical walk through Central Parkwraps the entire dining room in a dream like narrative. The line drawing come to life like an animated film, referencing the wild exuberance of New York City.

The private dining room: a calming gradient envelopes diners while oversized flora painted in watercolour techniques provide a bold focal point.

The “Library”: Moss and Lam filled oak bookcases with stacks of bound handmade paper, creating something more abstract and dreamy than a literal room of books.
