Picture the scene, a classic Mexican restaurant, soft lighting, wooden tables and chairs perhaps in tones of green and red; orange-yellow walls, a few pieces of Mexican paraphernalia and images of tourist attractions. You can find similar images on Google.
The Australian studio Juicy Design during the design of the new Méjico Restaurant & Bar in Sydney, confronted the various Mexican styles in order to create a modern restaurant with a strong identity, but at the same time still true to Mexican tradition. In particular the coverings and flooring were restored to their raw state and decorated with a bold design of minimal geometric shapes in a combination of soft and bold colours, but always with elegance.
