Student Project under Jonathan Wajskol with the brief of creating a high-end South American restaurant named Sal:
Restaurante Sal wants to bring the ease and comfort of luxury brazilian dining to New York. Our goal is to ensure that the customer feels at home, even when they’re not brazilian. We do that by using classic brazilian interior design, including a mix of leathers, concrete and recycled wood which drives all the other design aspects of the restaurant.
The name of our restaurant bares great impact on our food and identity. We chose to use only seafood dishes from where our salt is extracted from which is also where most of the population of Brazil is located. The salt grain also lends it’s shape to the logo of the restaurant which is drawn with the characteristics of architect, Oscar Niemeyer’s sketches.
To ensure the authenticity of our brazilian heritage, we chose to include the furniture by Jorge Zalszupin aswell as the works of renowned artist, Sergio Camargo.
