Divan Turkish restaurant by Corvin Cristian & Matei Niculescu, Bucharest – Romania

March 3rd, 2014 by retail design blog

Divan restaurant features a mix match of old ottoman artifacts (from doors to copper and zinc tables) and custom designed objects inspired by traditional ottoman ones. The walls are covered in authentic Turkish carpets and kilim patchwork which contribute to a sense of warmth and intimacy. The abundance of carpets and hanging lights are meant to recall the typical busy bazaar feeling.

The color scheme is based on various shades of turquoise. Pendant lamps are custom made either in the shape of the Turkish fez or inspired from the nargile base. The table bases shape comes from the moon support on top of the mosque but also from the chess pieces. The floor features Ottoman motifs cement tiles while walls in the bar areas are covered in traditional Iznic ceramic.
