The design principle at the restaurant located in a downtown shopping mall in Vienna was to avoid establishing a spectacle located in a place of excessive percipience. First and foremost the people, the excellent food, the taste should be percepted not the design. The new skin, the visible layer, consists of modificated, recombined and low priced materials which are quite unusual for the use in an gastronomic environment. They receive new haptic and optic characteristics through it’s large scale adjustment.
The unconventional illumination concept and the easy furnishing creates an amply space which characterizes the personality of our clients.
The aim was the disaggregation of the common shopping center character to a place of laid back identity which tells its stories even on the second and third glance.
