The challenge: keeping an eye on the big picture
Our main focus for this project was to create a spacious restaurant area from a series of complex small spaces which combined the traditional Asian domestic environment and European design.

 

The design: an invitation to a festival of cherry blossom
The art of designing with fine Chiyogami paper has a rich tradition in Japan. In designing the delicately floral wallpaper for the Bistro bonbao, we were giving new life and a contemporary flavour to an old art form.
 

The unique digital print transforms the restaurant's seating area into a sea of blossom. In this way the original small rooms with their nooks and crannies, which we turned into one single space by means of extensive bracing work, was given a visual frame.

When seated in the niches that make up the restaurant, the visitor has an uninterrupted view of the open kitchen which is demarcated by an aubergine-coloured bar. The logo with its organic form, which we developed for bonbao, conveys the weightlessness of Far Eastern architecture and its cuisine.

     
Ralf Kürbitz: 'The traditional, old craft techniques proved a real treasure trove as a source for new design ideas. Familiarising oneself with a foreign culture is always the first step.'
