Bio My Bio is much more than just a café. This is Matilda Shnurova's new project which represents a hybrid of a restaurant and an art object dedicated to the growing awareness of today.
The format of the restaurant is aimed at young people who follow the latest trends in nutrition and healthy lifestyle.
This ambitious task was to be met with a highly unconventional interior solution.
The restaurant concept was inspired by the projects that involveinvolving light coloristics and a foliage pattern play.
The result of a mix of these reference motifs is a space-embodied voluminous foliage pattern in the form of huge leaves that surrounding the restaurant hall is decorated with.
When entering the venue, guests get immersed into a totally surreal atmosphere which can at times evoke a feeling of fairy-tale-like unreality of everything around them. Visitors may feel being conveyed to the Thumbelina tale, which is prompted by one of the numerous
Easter eggs veiled as part of the project.
The second important aspect of the project was light coloristics.
As a result, we created an utopia together with Matilda, a fascinating fairy tale and an environmental manifesto.
