Before we started thinking about the design of this area, all we had was a name. A name that investors had for this Restobar that was “Fusion”.
So we thought: How do we start?
Everything you have to do before creating an idea is to understand the concept. The concept of this restobar was to bring the identity of its name itself – Fusion – that means mixture, by mixing the three main features: class, simplicity and elegance.
Warm materials are used to approach a comfortable home-feeling atmosphere while the bar in the middle makes everyone want to grab a cocktail. The unique part is those wood panels we used to cover the main wall at the entrance, that are capable of turning 90 degrees and revealing the Graffiti wall art we designed, to remind you of a garage underground vibe. Yeah, mixing underground class makes sense now, a mixture that eventually brings the result we intended for.
