Blueplate Studios designs Adrift by David Myers at Marina Bay Sands

Chef and restaurateur David Myers unveiled Adrift in Singapore. Located in the atrium of Marina Bay Sands, the restaurant was designed by Blueplate Studios, Wilson Associates’ food and beverage design studio, to evoke both the adventure of travel and the comfort of home.

With a sculptural enclosure that juxtaposes the atrium at Marina Bay Sands, Adrift unfolds from an illuminated wrapped wood and copper façade. Inside, the 4,000-square-foot restaurant houses a collection of spaces that cater to a various dining experiences, with a bar and private dining room enclosure, among others.

The centerpiece cocktail bar recalls a vintage Ginza-style, with diffused lighting, leather bar stools, antiqued metal screens and charred timber accents. In the garden parlor, timber benches hang from the ceiling, while floral accents allude to the wall of greenery outside. The private dining room houses a library with objets d’art and vintage photographs.
