Suite of exquisite, handmade menus for two restaurants in a 5-star hotel
In some settings, the attention to detail is so rigorous, every element of presentation prompts a unique exercise in design. The menus for the Peninsula's Peter and Hei Fung Terrace restaurants were two such projects. Each was intimately connected to the cuisine, the guests, and the ambience of the restaurant.
For Peter we created a tesselation of foiled and debossed leather; for Hei Fung Terrace we inset a die-cut metal plate copied from an architectural screen in the restaurant. Both required a full suite of variations and a high level of hand finishing. In our single-minded pursuit of perfection, the rejection rate was huge.
