I’m always looking out for books about interior design and architecture and I have a large post on my tumblr page that I update everytime I find new inspirational books. Today I came across Let’s Go Out Again by Gestalten. This book is filled with interiors for restaurants, bars and unusual food places some of which I have also posted on my blog (f.e. The Jane Restaurant and Väkst restaurant).
‘Going out to a restaurant or bar is always about more than just eating and drinking. Whether we’re seeking the adventure of a once-in-a-lifetime culinary experience or the familiarity of traditional cuisine, atmosphere makes a difference and we increasingly want it to be all-consuming. Let’s Go Out Again is an eclectic showcase of atmospheric eating spaces from around the world. The featured projects represent state-of-the-art collaborations among architects, artists, designers, restaurateurs, and chefs that target not only all of our senses, but our identities and values too.’
Let’s Go Out Again is comprised of six chapters, each of which exemplifies an aesthetic and conceptual point of view: Understatement, Modern Musings, Rough and Local, Progressive, Graphic Spaces, and Dramatic. Each of these approaches goes beyond the visual to buoy and amplify the philosophies of the kitchens or bars that they help define. The result is a congenial synergy between flavor and atmosphere, place and taste.
