Folium is a new fine-dining restaurant in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter and the brainchild of renowned chef, Ben Tesh.

With a vision for serving high-quality, contemporary cuisine in a relaxed environment, Ben asked us to create a clean, neutral restaurant concept, which would allow for culinary creative freedom and not feel over-designed.

“With this in mind, we created a palette of soft earth tones and used natural materials to create a pared-back yet comfortable feel to the space,” explains Faber’s Creative Director, Tony Matters. “An absence of prints and patterns generates a tranquil, serene environment where the food is the focus.”
