    F37 Ping Pong by F37 Foundry is one of the typefaces used for the interior design of the Middle Child Clubhouse restaurant by famous chef Matthew Cahn.

    The dotted caps from F37 Ping Pong are featured for the restroom light box sign, together with an unidentified sans serif used for “All Genders”. While the sign with the Clubhouse Policy shows a hand-rendered version of GT Alpina Italic by Grilli Type, the words “Thank You” painted on the pink trash can are modeled after Gooper Italic by Very Cool.

    Words from the Eater blog post about the project:

    Matt Cahn is in a pickle. No, wait. Matt Cahn has a pickle. A giant plastic one, the size of a small child, lying flat on a pool table in the center of his new 120-seat restaurant in Fishtown. It’s across from the curved bar, down the way from the coffee station, and a stone’s throw from a bright pink trash can at the entrance, where a familiar photo of Princess Diana — smiling beatifically and wearing an Eagles jacket – welcomes you to the clubhouse.

    The pickle hasn’t yet been given a role at Middle Child Clubhouse – Cahn’s second, much larger restaurant set to open next week at 1232 North Front Street – but it may eventually become a light fixture. “If you try hard enough, anything is a light,” Cahn says while leaning on a dark green tiled standing bar in the middle of the dining room, which was designed by Betsu Studio and Edsel Co. On the other hand, the pool table already has a job, Cahn says. “It’s for hanging the fuck out.”
