Mexican cuisine has a long tradition in Prague, and Burrito Loco fast food chain needed a new branding. Czech studio Formafatal was commissioned the interiors, marked by strong colours and some stereotyped elements that are easily recognisable by the general public. The new colour combination transfers Mexico’s great variety and glamour in the ceramic tiles, walls, corrugated sheet metal, cladding and chairs.

Formafatal intentionally replaced the characteristic Mexican tiles with monochrome tiles, and installed some globally-known symbols of Mexican pop culture, like cactuses and hanging paper garlands. The stylized sun of the Burrito Loco logo has been carefully applied to soft elements such as pillows and windows. Bathrooms are essential, painted with the same flamingo pink of the chairs and the petrol blue of the restaurant walls.
