The Purple Onion


Conceptualized by the internationally renowned Chef David Laris, Purple Onion has been directly inspired from the French Bistrot and Italian Trattoria. The Design features all the codes of these typical spaces yet deepening, sharpening and reinterpreting their usual characteristics. For instance, like the Bistrot is the homelike and popular kinds of place where you can always meet someone that you know, Purple Onion exhibits a series of oil-painting portraits representing the venue's ancestors. Witnesses of the time passing by, these characters, all of them sipping a glass of wine or a cocktail, are yet winking at the present by sharing a drink with the guests. The traditional family portrait is here hijacked to keep its familiar feeling while bringing to it humor and modernity.
