Young French design studio Hekla has just created its first global design project, a new restaurant, O'Petit en'K, in the heart of Bordeaux, France, combining graphic design, architecture, and design.
The challenge was to completely rethink street food.
We embarked on an adventure—proposing a restaurant with an industrial style and a New York City-like atmosphere in the heart of Bordeaux.
The project connected all of the strengths of the studio. The project consisted of a full restructuring of the space and a complete overhaul of the visual identity to create a new start for this brand.
The purpose of this operation was to create a strong, charismatic, and friendly identity in a small space. The space uses noble and authentic materials. Stone from Bordeaux blends with raw wood and metal. The kitchen is covered in white subway tiles. Raw wood siding "gives birth" to three tables. Space, furniture, and visual identity echo each other to create a cohesive and homogeneous ensemble.
