Eetbar DIT in the Netherlands
Average Rating: ( 0 votes)
A pair of graphic designers create a breakfast bar with a whimsical ambience. Eetbar DIT (which translates to breakfast bar) was designed by Edwin Vollebergh and Petra Janssen of graphic design firm Studio Boot . Though they admit their expertise is not interiors, they do have a point of view on space and reveled in DIT's request to create a restaurant "where both parents and children feel at home immediately." They played to their strengths with a creative use of color and a generous slate of graphic designs (patterned tiles, menus, bags, blankets, books) for the restaurant. They sourced the furniture from Dutch designer Roderick Vos , who creates durable tables, chairs, and bar stools on a small budget (in fact, so many patrons were interested in the pieces that Vos put the line into production). Above: The Swivel Wall Light is €399 from Functionals. Above: Vos designed the laser-cut Bonsai candleholders; €44.
