Hospitality Design — Restaurant / Dining
A scientific sensorial culinary journey that transports guests forward in time. Inspired by the idea of a pod situated in a Scandinavian forest, the experience encourages an existential self-realization in our roles as humans in the future. As guests indulge in nuances in layers of flavors, they are no longer where they physically and mentally expected to be.
MACHINE + FOREST /
A cerebral sci-fi approach to Scandinavian food where the visionary becomes reality. Inspired by Scandinavian birch forests, guests are greeted by preserved birch tree trunks. The dining area is placed on a raised platform inspired by a future pod, surrounded by trees represented by LED fluorescent pillars. A large atrium allows longer pillars to extend to the second floor, creating an open atmosphere.
Guests will have access to a mobile app, to create a user experience upon arriving at the restaurant. Guests can check available reservation dates, make reservations, and check in before they arrive. Implementing branding and pre-dining elements heighten the anticipation of the date they arrive.
