HAO Design : Bite to Eat

Feel at the restaurant like at friends? This was the goal of HAO Design for the design of Bite to Eat in Taipei City, Taiwan. Inspired by Italian culture, the set combines all desires in one place: eat at the table, picnic or camp, here everyone finds his account!

"At a party in an Italian mansion, some people dine in the dining room, others set up tents around the house, while a last group basks in the sun on the park benches. " This observation inspired the teams of HAO Design for the design of Bite to Eat, this funny concept restaurant. No convention but usability! An association of spontaneous and happy desires rarely associated.

From the outside, the facade of this unusual place announces the color: here we are in Italy, not in a Taiwanese metropolis. Stylish silhouettes of transalpine homes greet the client in a theatrical atmosphere. Spread over three levels, the ensemble offers three different atmospheres, as many acts of a room of the Comedia dell'arte. Connected to each other by a spiral metal staircase covered with vegetation, the spaces each offer a different concept, adapted to the desires of visitors.


On the ground floor, a "traditional" dining room with a pizza oven allows you to taste the food as you would in Rome. Then, the more you climb the stairs, the more the atmosphere relaxes. Indeed, on the upper floor, the host is found in a neighborhood pub, where the furniture is placed at the customer's wish. A corner called Little Bazaar can even buy, like a grocery store or a small indoor market, Italian products of all kinds.

The next level is designed as an interior patio bathed in natural light. And since it's almost like being outdoors, why not picnic there? Everything is conducive to enjoy a good summer meal. A renewed offer on the top floor where are arranged small round tables, a tent for up to three people and chairs in foldable fabrics. The whole lot is lined with succulents and ferns, interrupted by luminous hemp suspensions.

A unique place where comfort, sharing and nature are honored!
