Project • By Dos VeintinueveRestaurants


Located in a small spot in front of the Pyramid of Cholula's archaeological site, we designed this lunch spot (which was originally  meant to be a juice bar) with two young chefs who had previously worked in important local spots and were now ready to undertake their own personal project.

So we decided to represent this idea through materials and colors which reflected such, without falling into cliches. Jaime Navarro Yellow, a color found in nature, was the base and it links the neutral tones of p... More

Pasta Maria - Berlin

Colorful glass lamps shimmer like a tropical underwater world around the restaurant Pasta Maria, an Italian bistro, located in the heart of Potsdamer Platz, in the middle of Berlin. © Thomas Heimann   The lamps were developed together with a glassblower.
