At the same time, instead of being a traditional restaurant, the purpose lies in encouraging customers to explore and discover new experiences, whether that is in regards to gastronomy, to meeting different people or even to interact with the interiors.

Nowadays, with the advancements in manufacturing and technology is quite effortless to change materials while in production but for the designer, it is all about the departure point, the excitement and fascination for the material even before an idea materializes into your consciousness.
