The Budapest Cafe in Chengdu, China by Biasol

The Wes Anderson’s films are known as much for their set dressing as their storylines: The bold basics of Life Aquatic, the brassiness of The Darjeeling Limited, and the suburban delights of The Royal Tenenbaums created vivid worlds in which the narratives unfolded. The scene-stealing aesthetics of The Royal Budapest Hotel offered fertile soil for the team at Melbourne-based design firm Biasol to render a whimsical interior concept for a new cafe in Chengdu, China. With walls painted white and mint green, there's an airiness to the space that is paired with dark emeralds and glowing pinks. Furthermore, the interior juxtaposes arching frameworks—take a look at the doors and the shelving behind the bar—with rigid 90-degree angles like in the repeated staircase motif that caps the bar. The cafe is peppered with playful elements, including a pearly ball pit, custom neon lighting, and mid-century appliances.

The Budapest Cafe is just one of Biasol’s camera-ready interior concepts. Browse our book Appetizer to see their work on a cafe in London alongside a tasty buffet of delectable interiors from restaurants, bars, and other eateries around the world.
