Thomas Goode - makers of the world’s finest china, silverware and glassware since 1827 - came to Shed for their international expansion. There was much potential in a brand with two Royal Warrants and a rich history of designing for royalty around the world. The approach was to help Thomas Goode acknowledge the past whilst owning the future.
Within the prestigious Oberoi Mumbai hotel, a showroom sits alongside a museum, showcasing archival pieces from the homes of British and Indian royalty. Shed took inspiration from the brand’s Victorian headquarters in Mayfair, London, to bring a piece of the brand’s heritage to India.
There is an interplay between traditional and contemporary, decoration and simplicity. Going against industry norms, Shed envisaged a dark and dramatic environment as the perfect backdrop to china and glassware.
