This bold eatery in Kanpur, The Pink Zebra celebrates the old and new with just a hint of whimsy

Inspired by filmmaker Wes Anderson’s surreal aesthetic, Feast India Company alias The Pink Zebra is all about bright solids, bold geometry and pop art


What would happen if you were to dip a zebra into a deep, pink sea?

We find out with the quirky interiors of Feast India Company (FIC) imagined by New Delhi based Renesa Architecture Design Interiors Studio. The fantastically eccentric eatery housed in one of Kanpur’s oldest buildings is a ‘concoction of design theories…meant to leave the visitor hanging in the middle of an artistic sea’. FIC channels the owners’ – Sagar and Jaivardhan Bhatia – love for Wes Anderson films as well as the city’s bygone British culture. 

The interiors of Feast India Co. blend bold stripes, bubblegum pink, pop art and gold accents to create a surreal treat for the eyes.

We love how the visitor is drawn into this magical world from the moment they set eyes on the exteriors. The studio has merged multi-directional, black and white stripes on walls, ceilings, floors, furniture and accessories with solid expanses of bubble gum pink. Highlighted with brass details, the interiors hint at Art Nouveau glitz. You can feel the weight of Wes Anderson’s surreal design ideology seep through the carefully refurbished space – from the offbeat décor and lighting to furniture and even the staff’s uniforms.

The space boasts arched doorways framing zebra themed pendant lights illuminating Colonial-style sofas washed in pink. An artsy, pink hued false ceiling design has dome drop lights while another section features a ceiling with black and white stripes. Empty, arched alcoves in the wall, bar counter and concierge desk hide recessed lights. Contemporary leather banquettes sit across from zebra striped chairs and pop art wall illustrations break the monotony of the stripes and solid colour. 

The owners wanted to bring to Kanpur’s culinary scene a place that the city had never seen, an experience that would have people talking for days and an ‘expertly crafted world whose spaces are a framed treat to the eyes’. Well, they certainly got us all to sit up and take notice.

During the day, the sciagraphy brought about by the slatted terrace ceiling mirrors the bold, multi-directional stripes on the floors. Pink dome pendant lights and zebra striped ones illuminate the quirky space at night.
Mixing styles from different eras, sleek leather banquettes sit across from colonial style sofas, all washed in a sea of pink. Striking contrast are the bold stripes and wall art.
The gentle curves of the arched nooks create a wonderful contrast against the strict geometry of the décor and architectural features.
The Wes Anderson inspired aesthetic seeps through every corner of the unusual eatery.
