Aesthetics and function must come together to create ambiance and conviviality in a way that not only makes a bold first impression, but also secures a loyal following of regular customers” (quoted from Taschen website). The Restaurant & Bar Design Awards—the world’s only awards dedicated to hospitality design—recognize the importance of this particular field, singling out the world’s most exceptional settings for eating and drinking.
Divided into five chapters (for each continent), this Taschen book features 100 highlights from the establishments put forward to the panel. Either you’re looking for new designs for your home, or basically want to know about the most designed restaurants of your city, this book is a must-have on your coffee table.
