Nato

Designing NATO Headquarters' restaurants

Our agency, in collaboration with Aramark, won the international competition launched by NATO to define a new catering experience for its Brussels headquarters, aiming at fostering interactions between all its members.
For this exciting project, we developed a specific concept, BONDS.

The concept was to scale down to the common denominator : from a worldwide alliance of many countries to cities, neighbourhoods, communities, friends and family, bonds are the root of any relationship, deal or treaty. They are often created around a table, that's why we reinterpreted this important symbol of gathering experience.

For each space, we imagined an environment designed to induce and increase human interaction through art and craftsmanship. We disturbed the traditional "grid configuration" in the main restaurant and developed a bespoke organic-shaped table composed of a bar, a shelter, a refuge, a social hub, a terrace, a podium and a bench.
