The whole concept for the health food space is developed around the idea to fabricate an illusion of an exotic garden, a balcony or a terrace- al fresco areas- inside. The materials dominating the space are organic and the tones- earthy. Besides their prime function being aesthetical, there is a symbolic element to it all: banana trees and specifically selected plants are pointers to the menu. Plants are pivotal and almost iconographic. Staging is an important component of the design: every detail enhances the general warm and inviting atmosphere of the place, so mixed and matched cushions are placed. Usually neglected spaces, like toilettes, are made into focal points of the interior design, with the playful and colorful floral wallpapers and white tiles. To add a lavish note to the natural design, a patina-like wall is chosen. The wall is made, in a DIY special technique, by the Bosnian academic painter and artist- Damir Mumbasic. The sitting area is leaning upon the glass window displays, so custom made brass pieces are installed- both of functional and practical concern- for the customers not to lean directly on the glass windows, and for it to look visually appealing from the outside. The lighting is especially imposing, as there are multiple organic material chandeliers placed to hang from the ceiling. They cover almost the whole ceiling area and dominate the space, although not suffocating the space- it still feels airy. The focal point of the whole space is definitely the custom made bar, with herringbone patterned emerald tricolore tiles. The ceramic accessoires, decorative items and all the kitchen utensils are all incorporated into the natural and wholesome feel of the space.
The rattan lamps provide the organic and natural touch, while being light and breezy in their appearance, rather than cluttered and full.
The idea was to fabricate the look of a terrace inside, and play with natural colors. The parquest is rustical, but contemporary.
The sitting area is to be comfortable and not too stiff: the chairs are classy, but could also be imagined in a venue outside.
The custom made wooden table is robust, and just acts as a solidifying element, amongst the slick interior: it amplifies the harvest theme.
The custom made wall art was made by a Croatian artist- Damir Mumbasic, and it is a fancy upgrade with the wallpaper trend that is back in play.
The emerald bar is the focal point of the Deli restaurant and the rich green tones give the whole setting earthiness, while also being royal and Mediterranean, style- wise.
The bronze lamps in bronze play well on the custom made bronze wall and round the whole place up: the lighting in interior design is pivotal, and should be one of the main concerns while designing any place.
For the requirement of the space, the tables were custom ordered and made to fit the sitting benches by the windows, and provide for the most optimal sitting arrangements.
The bathrooms in hospitality areas are usually the spaces neglected the most, and we are about to change the approach: with the striking wallpapers, the toilettes are given the design attention they deserve.
