BIBO by Substance

By : Dennis Franklin | 26 Jul 2014 3:28 pm | Restaurants & Bars

BIBO is a French restaurant located in Hong Kong and it was created by the Substance design studio with street artworks from renowned designers such as Bansky, Damien Hirst or Daniel Arsham to provide a new way of experiencing art and food.

The original idea provided a space where new work can be exposed and artistic persons from all around the globe have been invited to present their work. The location of the restaurant is in a heritage building from the 1930s with marble floors and elegant illumination similar to those found in the Parisian saloons.

The designers created a new history for the building to connect the French elements with the contemporary street art so they imagined the space as the abandoned headquarters of the Compagnie Generale Francaise de Tramways with train timetables, ticket rolls placed into the ambiance as well as furniture pieces resembling the fictional space.

The interior has layers of marble stacked in uneven layers and the dining tables themselves are created from stone slabs also misaligned to create an eclectic but elegant and comfortable environment.
