Turner Prize winner Martin Creed's latest project is part exhibition and part restaurant where every item, from the crockery to the glassware, is unique.

Creed was commissioned by Sketch's owners, restaurateur Mourad Mazouz and chef Pierre Gagnaire, to create a temporary dining space in their Gallery restaurant, for which he was given complete artistic freedom.

The artwork consists of two separate pieces essentially: Work No. 1347, which refers to the bold marble flooring that zigzags across the dining room and creeps into the artwork on the wall, and Work No. 1343, which is composed of the unique collection of crockery, glassware, cutlery and furniture.
