If you believed everything you read about Maltasingh, you would have to believe that he lived for one hundred and ninety three years and that he had the extraordinary ability to be in more than one place at any one time….

What we know about Maltasingh as a matter of fact is that he was the proprietor of Brick Lane’s first ever Curry House, Maltasingh’s Indian Kitchen. It was built by Maltasingh and his friends from the surrounding furniture factories using reject and found components. The kitchen was located in what was once the disused warehouse of a string and twine shop, now a contemporary jewellery gallery and project space, Gallery S O.

For this years London Design Festival, Danny Clarke, Carl Clerkin and Jasleen Kaur have invited some of London’s leading designers and makers to help recreate this establishment of rich historic and cultural importance.

The kitchen will be constructed throughout September and will serve curry, pastizzi and beer on the 23rd, 24th and 25th of September.
The material for this refit is kindly supplied by SCP.
