Telling the story of Dolce Vita, extravagant and vital, for modern romantics, is the desire of Alex Kovatchev and Studio Idea. The concept of luxury is transferred to a magical forest. The mystical world in Mr. Pizza is turned upside down. Fireflies and reflections are scattered all around. The design is twisted in a Rock & Roll way, in order to create an enchanting oasis, a gourmet for the senses. The turned upside down gardens create a magical effect and a sensation of a mythical space. Going back to nature is interpreted with the idea of splendour and lavishness. The poetic lighting follows the shape and form of the upside down gardens and trees emphasizing the feeling mysteriousness.
What makes this project one-of-a-kind?
The vision of Alex Kovatchev and Studio Idea for this project is transforming the daily ritual of having a meal into an extraordinary adventure inside a wonderland world. The fairy tale like atmosphere in Mr. Pizza Original is a magical performance for all the senses.
