Masquespacio has completed its first interior design project in Milan for Italian hamburger chain Bun.
After presenting its Memphis inspired Toadstool collection in 2016 and their collaborative exhibition with Italian terracotta artisan Poggi Ugo during the last Milan Design Week, Masquespacio returns to Milan with its first interior design project for Bun, located at Viale Bligny, next to the Bocconi University.
The aim for the project was to create an identity with a clear focus on the younger generations and at the same time represent a more sophisticated approach for a high-quality hamburger restaurant.
The design developed by Masquespacio for Bun takes the opposite direction to many other burger restaurants and seeks to create an innovative concept that showcases the authenticity of the brand. Gold touches sit against terrazzo tiles with a splash of colour that creates a sophisticated, yet fresh design.
Also incorporated are the building's existing elements. Ana Hernández, creative director at Masquespacio, explains: “When we saw the beautiful bricks and arcs from the space it was evident for us that we would use these two elements as the starting point of the design.”
To create a uniform aesthetic throughout, Masquespacio added additional arc forms with a green and purple colour palette. Additionally, the wooden table tops and plants represent the healthy and zero-plastic values, which make up Bun's identity.
Following the success of this project, Masquespacio and Bun are working on several new restaurants, amongst which is Buns’ first opening in Turin.
