Málà Project


A new school chinese restaurant with a nostalgic feel.


Service: Floral Design, Plant Design, Plant Care
Location: Manhattan, NY





What if a restaurant had you nostalgic for a place you’ve never been? That’s what LIVIN and Mala Project set out to do: to create a plant and floral design that evokes, not exotifies, a wistful, Chinese aura. From tiny clay sculptures burrowing in Chinese greens to old tea tins repurposed as planters, LIVIN seamlessly weaves Chinese design motifs into a classical NY space.



Fun fact:  Take a close look in the backyard, you’ll see dried birdseye chilis nesting in a bird cage!
