InterContinental Davos, Switzerland, has opened its new restaurant that will certainly attract fans of non-standard cuisine. Studio Grigio is the place, where visitors will enjoy not only taste of their food, but also its look as the main theme of the restaurant is art and fashion.
The passion for art can be seen in every aspect of the restaurant. Its design, which was developed by Henry Chebaane from Blue Sky Hospitality, amazes by an unusual combination of materials and artworks. The restaurant looks elegant, modern and a bit whimsical at the same time.
As Chebaane mentions, while developing design for the new restaurant, he was inspired by the location of the hotel. InterContinental Davos is located in mountains, so various minerals formed main concept of the design. Here guests will find white marble, crystals, and silver stones that make walls of the restaurant shine with a natural sparkle. Instead of carpeting, it was decided to use anthracite. In order not to make the restaurant look too cold and to add more fashion to it, Chebaane combined minerals with such materials as merino wool and leather.
Once the “fashion” aspect was done, the restaurant needed “art” to fit the venue in general. In Studio Grigio, guests will find different kinds of art, starting from artworks inspired by Albrecht Durer and H.R. Giger, to multimedia installations that mix modern and traditional, art and geography. Among notable installations are blended with natural materials vinyl dolls that make statements about modern humankind or an electric guitar in granite.
