The 18.13 restaurant by Arkham plays with paint to produce geometric shapes for the interior of the new business. The restaurant is attached to the Como Theater, so Arkham worked with this business to create a design that reflected the imaginative environment of the company.

For coloring, Arkham used red and white done in a way that creates clearly defined areas of the interior (even when they are not physically disconnected with a barrier of some sort). Interestingly according to DesignBoom, "the internal surfaces refer to elements of the stage, using a deep maroon color similar to the typical curtain that opens and closes to signal various parts of a performance." This is one of the ways a connection is drawn between this eating space, and the one where performers act onstage.
