Armourcoat on the menu for new Centre Point restaurant

    Surface finish specialists Armourcoat have been specified throughout the VIVI restaurant, a new 1960’s inspired eatery opening in the Centre Point Building in London’s West End. VIVI promises to deliver traditional British food with an innovative twist.

    VIVI’s 290-cover dining room serving delicious British favourites, has its interior design inspired by sixties colours and fabrics including a handmade chandelier by Danish designer Vibeke Fonnesberg Schmidt. The new restaurant, created by rhubarb – the team behind Sky Garden and Verdi Italian Kitchen at the Royal Albert Hall, is part of a wider refurbishment of Richard Seifert's celebrated Grade-II listed high-rise tower.

    Armourcoat finishes have been used to spectacular effect in the entrance lobby, restaurant reception, bar and dining area, with close to 300m2 of hand-finished polished plaster applied to the walls. In addition, 240m² of Armourcoat’s new acoustic plaster system has been installed to the ceilings in the main dining room.

    Designed to optimize the acoustics of interior spaces, the Armourcoat Acoustic plaster system offers a clean and smooth mineral surface that can be applied seamlessly over large expanses to both flat and curved surfaces. Comprising of a special mineral wool composite panel that is bonded onto the substrate and finished with a seamless layer, the system presents an elegant marble-based plaster finish while allowing sound energy to pass through the surface. The system was recently granted the Quiet Mark Award - the international mark of approval from the Noise Abatement Society Charitable Foundation.
