Focusing on social style dining, the rich materials, soft palette and lighting evoke a contemporary design language. The sunset inspired lighting feature is one of the stand out elements within the design, which the studio created in collaboration with Preciosa Lighting.

For the furniture seating, XO Atelier worked with Billiani Italy and Kvadrat Fabrics, integrating their Nordica chairs and Load bar stools to complement the overall design scheme.

Billiani created customized table bases and tops in harmony with the material chosen by the design team, liaising closely to deliver a highly customized solution.
