Dans le quartier d'Astoria à New York, l'agence Bluarch a réalisé l'aménagement intérieur de la boulangerie et pâtisserie grecque Omonia. Des carreaux de mosaïque chocolat habillent le plafond et les murs. Suspendus, des sphères de bois forment une voute surprenante. L'atmosphère y est décalée, contemporaine et postmoderne, chaleureuse et décadente à la fois.

Sur ce projet, l'agence Bluarch précise:

"This bakery is a brand new project for the family behind the renowned Omonia brand famous for its Greek pastries. It sells pastries and breads prepared on premises in the see-through kitchen.

The design of this store celebrates indulgence... the suspension of one’s everyday grind through the consumption of a sweet delight. The space is soft and warm… sexy and decadent… as chocolate.

Much like the physiognomy of a pastry, this design wants to offer the exciting anticipation of a pastry in-fieri... the liquid concoction, the minced ingredients... The space shifts organically with the narrative of flavors as patrons taste the succulent delicacies.

The main feature of the 1,000sf interior space is a fluid surface [clad with 1/4" chocolate brown Bisazza tiles] which covers the ceiling and the side walls to different heights. This surface warps in bubbles and negotiates a system of 6-inch tubular incandescent light bulbs... and an arrangement of red cedar wood spheres. The epoxy flooring continues to the walls via filleted corners. A shelf and LED strips navigate the transition with the chocolate surface.

The kitchen is exhibited to the public, as it sits simply within a tempered glass box... Therefore, the exquisite level of craftsmanship of the project [with its unforgiving alignments and complex details] is paralleled with the refined artisanship of Omonia's pastries."
