Amazing Beautiful Fairwood Buddies Cafe in Hong Kong
Fast food restaurant design was no challenge for Hong Kong-based designer Danny Chan, the former chief interior designer of Steve Leung Designers Ltd, and John Chan Design Ltd. Danny Chan has contributed to the trendy and fashionable re-branding of Maxim’s Fast Food and designed many outlets in the Fairwood franchise; today, Chan is the director to his own entrepreneurial quest, Beige Design. Commissioned to design a branch of the Fairwood Buddies Café in the Citygate mall in Tong Chong, conveniently located at the end of the ‘fast track’, the fast food restaurant takes a refreshing scoop of design and an interesting approach where the space is filled up with geometric hexagonal shapes!
Beige Design was inspired and approached the interior, drawn by an oversized hexagonal column in the floor plan; the flimsy yet elegant design sparked off with a geometric recurrence within the space like a hexagonal chemical bond which is formed in chemistry. A Corian® hexagonal counter stands in front of the column; custom-designed pendant lights feature bare bulbs encased in hexagonal wire casing.
