Futudesign Oy: Bronda

Located in the heart of Helsinki, the restaurant Bronda has been designed by Futudesign Oy to bring a contemporary Mediterranean environment to an interesting street level space.

Futudesign Oy: Bronda
Designed by the studio Futudesign Oy, Bronda – the fifth restaurant by Helsinki’s culinary duo Tomi Björck and Matti Wikberg – , has three main spaces: cocktail bar next to the entrance, 7 meters high dining hall and private cabinets at the back of the space.

The cocktail bar is a low intimate space made of warm and colourful materials such as brass, wood, marble and leather. The pattern of the tiled floor in the front bar has got its inspiration from the Helsinki sea chart.

The custom made giant walk-in wine cabinet separates the cocktail bar from the dining hall. The large windows make the dining hall part of the street life with exiting views to and from the restaurant. The cabinet space can be divided into four smaller rooms or it can be used as an extension of the dining hall.

In addition to the spatial design Futudesign has also designed most of the furniture but for the 250 seating it chose the Malmö collection of the Italian manufacturer Pedrali designed by Michele Cazzaniga, Simone Mandelli and Antonio Pagliarulo. The collection is born from an imaginary journey along the sides of a Scandinavian lake.

Thanks to a skilful wooden manufacturing and the possibility to customize the ash shell with a wide range of upholstering, Malmö conveys a sensation of comfort, warm welcoming and familiarity to the surrounding environments.
