Celebrating the union of design and food
Architecture and design are known to express the cultural context in which they are created, while simultaneously impacting and recreating culture. The food, wine and restaurant industries are no exception to this movement. The union of food and design is an acknowledged global cultural piece.
Food and beverage lovers don’t just look for good food but also for also for an experience that is memorable, unique and for many, photographable. Design, especially interior design, is a key element to today’s overall dining experience. It sets the tone for a meal, creates a specific mood, and highlights the identity of the restaurant.
