Project description from design firms KIDZ Design
Six Seasons – a small intimate restaurant on Vasilievsky Island, the concept of which is built around the natural cycles of nature. The change of seasons dictates a change in the food ration, and after that the menu in the restaurant is updated – so through the food you can feel what spring or late autumn tastes like.
The interior emphasizes and reveals this gastronomic concept, creating an atmosphere of a cozy forest around the guest. Muted colors, natural textured materials and landscaping, coupled with accent chamber lighting, immerse you in a real grove – and when darkness falls, it is not at all scary to enter it.
The main symbol of seasonality – burnt wood – is found in the interior on a different scale, from large logs along the walls of the hall, to the handle of the front door. This way of processing the material shows the beauty of aging, giving it a pleasant texture, but not hiding its authenticity.
The light installation overhead enhances the feeling of the forest – the shadows from the branches, swaying on the surface of the translucent fabric, give rise to doubts about the finiteness of space, as if the “forest” continues beyond its borders.
