900 North Michigan: Chicago, IL. AvroKO emphasized existing layout of the building by designing open framework structures on each level to draw the eye upwards but also to create smaller pockets within the larger space to section off more intimate seating and dining areas. Channeling the ever-iconic Coco Chanel and her avant-garde approach toward luxury and fashion, the choices for colour palette and materials reflected Chanel’s flawless ability to blend subtle masculinity into a more feminine vision featuring materials like tweeds, and wools all set in a rich two-tone colour palette dubbed “Signature Coco.”
Hoxton Chicago: Chicago, IL. AvroKO has created a narrative weaving together the richness and warmth of the American Crafts movement, the celebratory spirit of 1930’s post-prohibition Chicago, and the eccentric vision of Edgar Miller, a Chicago artist who flouted formal education to create his own learning laboratory through his work. This modern interior design restaurant is designed by passion and love for nature and the arts.
Dutch & Docs: Chicago, IL. The design of Dutch & Doc’s (the 5th collaboration between AvroKO and the Boka Restaurant Group) takes as its point of departure a homage to its location and reverence of place. With its front door situated directly across from the iconic Chicago Cubs sign and entrance to the famed Wrigley Field, Dutch & Doc’s reinterprets the types of social gathering spaces that existed as a nascent baseball culture in the late 1800s first took shape, connecting us through a sort of time-space continuum to one of America’s oldest institutions.
Somerset: Chicago, IL. Somerset is the fourth collaboration between Boka Restaurant Group and AvroKO and the latest culinary concept from the esteemed chef Lee Wolen. Located in the prestigious and well-heeled Gold Coast neighborhood, the AvroKO team derived inspiration from the 1960s and 1970s when the Kennedy-esque leisure set was in its heyday frequenting country clubs throughout America.
The Zodiac Room: New York, NY. AvroKO has created a sophisticated but innovative narrative by reinterpreting classical inspirations from New Formalism through a modern interior design lens, pioneering the local avant-garde spirit. The overall space is divided into three experiences which leads the guest from the least formal and most animated to an enveloping and more classic dining room. The facade evokes elements of New Formalism while incorporating modern brass screens with perforated and laser-cut detailing.
SingleThread: Healdsburg, CA. The AvroKO team found its inspiration for the modern interior design of Single Thread in husband and wife team and owners, Kyle and Katina Connaughton. Odes to the couple’s love for farming, gardening, and molecular gastronomy can be found throughout the space. Woven patterns within the restaurant room screens reference DNA sequencing of common kitchen herbs like basil and shallots, while a rooftop fountain has a series of stepped recesses and grooves based on golden sections and naturally occurring scientific proportions which catch water and alter the flow.
Waldorf Astoria Bangkok: Bangkok, Thailand. Taking inspiration directly from the NYC Waldorf Astoria, the Bangkok installment of Waldorf Astoria retains a distinct Art Deco vibe juxtaposed with the pattern, materiality and vibrancy of Thai Lanna Culture. Gorgeous local textiles, intricate handcraft and detailing that exemplifies the true nature of Thailand lives in harmony with the Art Deco strength of the Waldorf brand.
Penthouse Bar & Grill: Bangkok, Thailand. Housed in the former British Embassy in Bangkok, AvroKO was commissioned to envision the five separate food and beverage venues. The design centered around a fictitious muse – a Thai-British man who is a collector and purveyor of fine arts, ceramics, and vintage car racing relics – alongside inspiration from British fashion and the lavish penthouses found in Chicago and New York. The rooftop bar features custom-designed trellis’ and the PDR in the restaurant is home to a wall-length cabinet holding a collection of precious and semi-precious stones.
The Modern Pantry: London, United Kingdom. Through an investigation of Chef Anna Hansen’s familial roots in Denmark, by way of New Zealand, AvroKO discovered a rich history in both design, architecture, and botany that created the foundation of the two-pronged design inspiration. The furniture, millwork, lighting, and materiality including bent plywood, teak, oak as well as graphic tile, took a page from the classical styles of mid-century Denmark and Northern Europe generally. For the color palette and art features, the team unearthed the Flora Danica. Dark blue and off-white hues color the restaurant seen in the white oak bar, saturated blue menu board, patterned tile, and a dark blue pivoting screen.
Boccalino: Seoul, South Korea. The Italian modern interior design restaurant was inspired by iconic Italian design over the centuries culminating in a cross-section between the modern, bold, sleek Italian designs from the 1970s juxtaposed against a quieter style of 19th century Italian residential classicism. This is best exemplified with the black and white geometric floor pattern against a backdrop of Italian marble and white Venetian plaster walls with pops of blue accents throughout. The color palette in the bar skews a bit warmer featuring walnut throughout but still has its own personality with the insertion of mid-century modern furniture which adds an eclectic flair.
