Restaurants and Bars Design III

Hardback
Presenting an eclectic collection of the most contemporary, Restaurants & Bars III takes the concept of the restaurant, as defined by its interior. Within busy cities, these spaces provide the opportunity to escape for a while; in their simple and uncomplicated design, they engender a sense of peace and tranquillity and focus attention on the private rather than the public individual. Using natural materials to emphasise a state of calm, there is bleached wood and smooth stone, warm earth tones and unobtrusive lighting; there are shapes and forms that link into the natural environment, flowers that might be butterflies, a flock of terracotta sheep in relief on a wall, traditional prints and designs that link to the culture and philosophy behind innovative food and the latest cocktail.
