Manchester’s Deaf Institute is a landmark building, once the city’s centre for the Adult Deaf and Dumb – hence the name. The historic building, completed in 1877, now houses a basement bar, cafe/bar and upstairs music hall which plays host to many big name acts.
The interior is eclectic, pulling inspiration from classic industrial design and more elegant antique pieces. Our favourite pieces are the James Leonard chairs, designed for Esavian – aluminium frame with plywood. It’s a classic 50′s design, injecting sleek design into an every day item.
