Quirky designs promote unique experiences

These restaurants demonstrate how contemporary designs can enhance customer experience.

Theatrical, Elegant and Quirky: Mia Fringe - Kokaistudios is a space in which to see and be seen. Inspired by the opulence, drama, and layered visibility of theater, Kokaistudios’ design showcases an array of services, Mia Fringe incorporates a shopping district with a dining district, which come nightfall, transforms into an atmospheric lounge-bar concept. A theatre of a space, inside of which visitors are invited to find their own persona and role, Mia Fringe is where narratives combine and stories unfold.

Completed in May 2018 and covering an area of 2,200 square meters, Not Club - Republican Metropolis Architecture is a new generation of music bars. “Not” stands for unknown and “Club” stands for the moment. Just like NASA, the designer also chose to use the record as the core of the experience, and designed the entire bar as a spaceship. The design of new technology elements took out the dull feeling of traditional bars and moved it to a bar that had a feeling of “walking in the future”.

LIÒN - CollidanielArchitetto is a restaurant and cocktail bar located in a historical building from the Rationalist era in the heart of Rome. Despite its position, it does not cater to tourists, the owners have stayed true to their vision to provide the city with a cosmopolitan design venue that stands out for its international allure in a city steeped in history and tourism. LIÒN is a universe of materials, colors and geometries that blend together with great formal coherence to offer customers an all-engaging experience between design and cuisine.

Michelin Starred Chef Vineet brings a fresh and modern take on Indian street food to  Indya by Vineet - LW. Taking influence from the vibrant colours and textures of India, the brief was to create a casual yet unexpected and inspired dining experience; a vibrant mix of eclectic pieces immediately gives Indya a fun and unique identity. The dynamic circular shape of the restaurant, lends itself to creating a different experience in every element of the restaurant, including a hidden gem within the large central core. The fun interiors of the restaurant coupled with the personality and cooking flare of Chef Vineet, create a relaxed yet colourful experience, in almost every way.
