PORT 2.0 Interior Design by DA.

Located in St. Petersburg, the second location of Port was designed to bridge the gap between marine themes and an urban brutalist industrial vibe. DA. achieved this raw, unapologetic and sleek aesthetic with materials often used in Scandinavian minimalistic architecture, marine hardware, and oversized typography both as texture and graphic elements. Their stylistic nods towards seafood throughout the space brilliantly double as accent pieces. The jellyfish pendants, geometric stainless steel fish wall, brushed metal marine lamps, and netting under their incandescent bulbs creates visual depth and interest to the interiors while maintaining a firm footing in the seafood realm without being cliché.

A sleek, beautiful punch to your senses; PORT 2.0 by DA.

Chia-Yu is a senior designer with an illustration problem he tries not to confront or talk about at Vigor, a restaurant & beverage branding & marketing agency. His love of strange design quirks, sci-fi creature designs, exotic foods, Asian whiskeys, and dry humor makes him equal parts weird and surprisingly adept at navigating client requests. He writes here occasionally to please his boss(es).
