Collidanielarchitetto designs eclectic and experimental Covent Garden restaurant

VyTA Covent Garden is a wonderland of colours and shapes, designed to surprise, celebrate and entertain people who’s looking for a world of pleasure and emotions.
– Daniela Colli

Collidanielarchitetto's design of the first venue outside Italy for restaurant chain VyTA is an "eclectic and experimental" conversion of a space in London's Grade II listed Covent Garden Market.

Collidanielarchitetto says the project draws on both contemporary design and the "architectural culture of the sixties." This has been translated to wooden walls and lacquered surfaces, inlays and friezes, glass and metals used throughout the space.

The lower floor, where visitors arrive, is designed to be intimate and welcoming. A polychrome marble floor, inspired by the artworks of the futurist painter Giacomo Balla, rhombus shapes and white vaulted ceilings throughout are used to bring continuity to the downstairs rooms. The spaces are finished with burgundy velvet-upholstered seating and brass tables.

The upper level of the restaurant is accessed via a rosewood staircase that rises around a green Alpi marble wall, with gold-coloured wallpaper and matching brass fittings. The Alpi marble and brass theme is carried through upstairs, where large windows allow natural light into the cocktail bar. Again, polished brass and green Alpi marble dominate the bar counter.


Two terraces with cushioned metal seating provide an opportunity for visitors to sit outside, with the emerald metal drawing through the green theme of the interior marble and matching the metalwork of the Covent Garden dome.

Discussing the design, Daniela Colli, founder of the Collidanielarchitetto, said: "VyTA Covent Garden is a wonderland of colours and shapes, designed to surprise, celebrate and entertain people who’s looking for a world of pleasure and emotions."

VyTA Covent Garden opened this summer.
