Working closely with the restaurant’s owner Yulia Savlepova, the firm has created an interior that comments on the future while employing materials of the past. Savlepova had a clear vision for the space, wanting to express the idea that the city is the “new jungle” and that people are the “smart animals” who inhabit it.
The design has been completely executed in white tiles, harking back to the Soviet era when swimming pools, hospitals and shops were all outfitted in the monochromatic material. Bursts of colour are introduced through brightly-coloured decorative fruit, greenery and a neon sign that emblazons the name of the restaurant across the wall.
Matching white seating and tables line the perimeter of the space, while the menu is displayed in black lettering that is affixed to the tiles behind the counter. The unique design concept allows the food and drink served at the restaurant to really stand out against the setting.
