Montreal-based Jean de Lessard has created a restaurant interior inspired by fractal theory, an interpretation of nature’s geometry and its irregularities, matched with vibrant colours and complemented with natural materials.
“The variable geometry that was integrated succeeds in breaking the monotony and gives beat to the space. But it must be powerful enough for the concept to be self-sufficient”, explains the designer of his “programmed chaos”.
The entrance, one of the bold design elements, is defined by geometrical patterns colored in shades of red and pink. “It acts as a bold transition towards a space which the designer has modulated by using three-dimensional steel structures. The depth of the aerial platform anchored to the ground now gives rhythm to the place.”
“Inside, asymmetrical volumes are covered with materials that are within the same axis, thus bringing increased dynamics to the environment.”
