Textual content description supplied by the architects. Langos Bar is a tiny avenue meals bar in Bratislava, situated in an outdated market corridor within the historic a part of the town heart. It’s serving langos, a standard avenue meals dish from Hungary that makes use of fried sourdough flatbreads to ship, usually, a mix of bitter cream, ketchup, cheese, and garlic. Nevertheless, based by native heroes Lukas Heskoand Robo Nagy the brand new LANGOS BAR idea brings a special method.
Topped with pecorino, pastrami, or shrimps, it exhibits numerous choices on methods to improve this conventional Hungarian meals. All of that paired with drinks and pure wine from the area. The place has the ambition to create a spot for locals the place they’ll hang around, a spot for vacationers visiting the town. It’s like Jekyll and Hyde, in the course of the day very clear, however when the evening comes, the celebration begins.
Though area is barely 12 sqm, it suits all the mandatory gear. Our method was to create a visually easy however robust design idea based mostly on a 10 x 10 sq. grid. We inserted a practical field product of white tiles, metal bars, and stainless-steel within the tough cement completed unit. The one coloration we used is crimson, which creates an accent and is properly linked with the visible identification.
The identification, designed by native agency Good Man represented by Matej Spanik revolves round a really glad and spherical face icon designed in collaboration with Tomas Rybar, aka Sicknico. Their method was to create a visually robust and daring identification that may reinterpret this contemporary idea, however on the similar time conserving the character of the idea genuine and straightforward to grasp. They needed to specific the pleasure that consuming langos brings.
