Luneurs Le Garde Manger restaurant branding by HCreates Design

Luneurs Le Garde-Manger is an all day brunch restaurant concept in Shanghai. French inspired, this experience infuses the beauty of plant life with geometric organization to create a lovely dichotomy between the two. The design team at HCreates Design describes the approach as such:

“Referencing traditional French elements and forms, the interior pallet mixes both traditional and modern materiality. Rough cut stone slabs form monolithic counters with contrasting lightweight brushed stainless cabinetry keeping a contemporary tone. The use of timber, marble, sheer curtains, and cane provide warmth and tradition. Each expressed in a modern way, clean lines, soft fabric hues, and onyx bring a light and refined touch.”

I think they ace this direction wonderfully. The space is relaxing and intriguing all at once. I specifically love how the shelving invites your eye to dance around the compartments looking for treasures. Additionally, the flood of natural light is so refreshing. I’d love brunch here.
