For the restaurant â€œredoxâ€ in the Dolce Munich Unterschleissheim, JOI-Design was briefed to conceive a fine-dining establishment that would tell a story through its individuality and reflect the flag's updated brand standards. The designers' solution was to construct a tale of Bavarian culture that balances modern and traditional elements while celebrating the region's culinary inheritance.
Redox's understated entry suggests a place of respite from the hubbub of the neighbouring conference areas. The name â€œredoxâ€ refers to the chemical process that naturally occurs in antioxidant foods and, as such, directly corresponds to a tenet of Dolce's redefined corporate philosophy of â€œnourishmentâ€, or nurturing the spirit, mind and body of its guests. JOI-Design interpreted this concept through the gourmet restaurant's contemporary focal point, a backlit â€œwine wallâ€ which showcases the bountiful â€“ and antioxidant-rich - varietals vinified in the region. Gracing either side of the access gallery between the wine displays, â€œsculpturesâ€ of traditional male and female â€œtrachtsâ€, the embroidered national costume of Germany, are a light-hearted homage to the locale's provenance.
Evidence of this intimate, 40-seat dining area's Bavarian inspiration can be found through the roughly textured antler chandeliers that provide a distinct counterpoint to the smoothness of the crisp white tablecloths and rich dark stained oak; together they evoke the spirit of a fine, time-honoured German dining hall. Tailored leather handles on the bespoke chairs upholstered in wool tweed add a both handsome and functional touch, while the horizontal orientation of the unstained oak panelling behind the banquettes relaxes the room's tone so diners can unwind from the frenetic pace outside the restaurant. Dramatic contrasts and adjustable mood levels have been achieved through the strategic placement of â€œeco-friendlyâ€ LEDs and energy-saving lamps. JOI-Design's attractive yet practical scheme reflects the location's unique cultural heritage as well as Dolce's new brand identity.
