Glass Studio worked with Galaxy’s opening team on designs for food presentation several dining venues. Today we would like to present our dinnerware designs for “Festiva” all-day dining restaurant.
Food presentation at Festiva, Galaxy Macau
Festiva is an all-day dining restaurant at the Galaxy Macau resort, offering rich selection of international and Asian dishes. Restaurant offers buffet dining with international and Asian flavors and “live cooking theater” as entertainment for guests.
Restaurant is created as a multi-level dining venue with several thematic zones to accompany different dining sections and cuisines. The focal point of the restaurant’s decor is the elaborate metallic flower panel above the open buffet, which is paired with elements in marble, glass, wood and metal that help create appetizing food presentation.
Glass Studio dinnerware designs for Festiva featured range of buffet dinnerware for elaborate food presentation. Designs included various buffet elevations, buffet trays, glass serving bowls and platters, and smaller glass dishes as cutlery rests.
Buffet dinnerware designs centered on orange color, which blended with the warm color palette of the restaurant’s décor. Glass trays and platters for buffet elevations were placed on dark brown metal stands, matching the marble pattern of the buffet counters.
Dinnerware designs centered mainly on soft oval and round shapes so as to make handling of dishes easier, which is very important in fast-pace buffet dining.
As a final result, careful approach to colors, shapes and patterns in designing concepts for food presentation helped create dinnerware that complemented the dining offer of the restaurant and accentuated the style of its interior.
