Today we’ll show a dazzling industrial style restaurant in Copenhagen simply named 108. The restaurant is a culinary spin-off of Redzepi’s acclaimed NOMA, which has dominated the global restaurant rankings for many years. However, 108 surprises almost exactly as much as is needed to avoid disrupting the comfort that its lineage inspires.
Take a look and get inspired!
As the legendary NOMA’s younger sibling, Restaurant 108 is meant to overall feel younger. Almost casual.
The challenge has been to evoke NOMA without letting it overshadow the new venture, and to shake up the almost reverence that has come to be associated with a reservation there, without disputing the respect that Redzepi’s iconic establishment has earned which Baumann and his menu have accomplished.
The space was designed by SPACE Copenhagen, founded by Signe Bindslev Henriksen and Peter Bundgaard Rutzou -also responsible for René Redzepi’s NOMA. The result was an industrial design with industrial lamps and exposed brick walls that give life to this amazing restaurant.
The design studio has highlighted the building’s former use as an industrial warehouse, offering accents of color used with profound precision, to offset the lingering emptiness with inviting warmth.
Meanwhile, the neon blue sign on the restaurant’s wall keeps a misguiding distance from the bursts of green and red in its interior, tempering the muted simplicity of concrete and dark metals.
All the furniture, also designed by SPACE Copenhagen, orchestrates diners into a casual flow that takes its cues from the communal tables with their long benches, the curved details found on the barstools, and the tables that set up little islands within the space. It is a predominantly Scandinavian style of design, one that finds comfort in reductionism, and at the same time one that seeks to entertain it.
