We stopped in at Claypot, the new neighborhood Vietnamese restaurant on San Pablo last night. The food was good and I really liked the light fixtures by Omega Lighting. They were made out of old wine barrel hoops. What I like most is the cool shadow and light patterns that they cast on the white ceiling.
The place does need some acoustical dampening. The designer owner told me that they would be installing some sound absorbent panels in the middle of the ceiling. I hope they don’t take away from the beautiful shadows!
