In the Astoria district of New York, the Bluarch agency carried out the interior design of the Greek bakery and pastry shop Omonia. Chocolate mosaic tiles adorn the ceiling and walls. Suspended, wooden spheres form a surprising vault. The atmosphere is quirky, contemporary and postmodern, warm and decadent at the same time.
