Dine Art restaurant by Area-17, Hong Kong

February 9th, 2017 by retail design blog

Dine Art is where art and fine cooking merge to create the perfect union of sensory experiences. The restaurant is located on the 16th floor of the Kwai Bo industrial building, at the heart of the popular Wong Chunk Hang (Aberdeen) neighborhood in Hong Kong. Here art galleries, restaurants, cafes, and multi-functional spaces have been breathing new life into the former industrial volumes. Within the stunning 400 sqm art display, chef Cosimo Taddei serves fine Italian food in a classy yet casual environment. Area-17 designed the dining area to foster an almost intimate relationship between clients and works of art.

The raw metal kitchen opens on the dining area, conveying the idea of functionality. The metal mesh bar counter and vintage leather stools act like a filter between the two environments. The essential and still rich furnishing in the dining area serves its purpose without interfering with the real protagonists of the design: food and art. Set apart from the main dining area, the cozy lounge furnished with leather sofas and kilim rugs offers an intimate escape for a drink or a relaxed conversation. A rarefaction in the lighting marks the transition from the restaurant to the real gallery.
