Retail: tincan by AL_A




Next week award-winning design and architecture studio AL_A present tincan, a six month restaurant project in Soho, serving the best tinned seafood in the world.

“While designing a new cultural centre in Lisbon, our team discovered a former fishing tackle shop, which was transformed into a tiny, vibrant restaurant serving only tinned seafood. What started as lunch quickly became an idea, and subsequently a new project,”  the designers told Despoke.

 Tincan elevates the humble tin to an object of desire in a setting designed by AL_A, which offers 30 different tins, all of the finest quality seafood, to eat in the restaurant or to purchase at the store.


An array of cans form a striking repeat pattern against the black Corian® backdrop setting the tone of the fit. Working with their collaborators, AL_A have designed lights to showcase LG’s OLED technology, a wafer thin light source, stackable aluminium stools and tables made by Iduna of Portugal.


We love the concept of: no kitchen, the finest tinned seafood delicacies, super healthy, and great graphics with the tin as the hero.


Opening 15 September: Tincan – 7, Upper James Street, Soho, W1F 9DH.
