Inside Mazi Greek Kitchen in Budapest

Mazi is a greek bistro-bar based in Budapest, Hungary. The name of the bistro means ‘together’ in Greek and it is also the core idea of the venue – mixture of this need, a family-style milieu, and graceful, greekish mood with the smell of the ocean in the heart of Budapest. The interior was designed by studio Gasparbonta.

 “We can see right into the kitchen, like at a friend’s place. The interior is complied from simple, clean materials, pastel colors, well-pronounced structures. Stone, wood, concrete, brick, iron and copper in one space. The place is not huge, but surely a lot of us can fit in. We share food, we drink, we laugh. Together. Mazi! The interior design concept is a mixture of really old and really new, simple and contemporary mixes up with honest materials. We have created a cool, light, airy ambient with sophisticated lighting solutions, and geometrical abstractions like the pendant lights shaped like a flying bird’s wings or the suspended arbor in an iron frame. The contrast between objects and materials makes this a complete system, like the brutal marble table with iron legs and the thin wooden chairs next to it or the cleaned existing brick walls and the new, glossy, smooth concrete floor,” said Gaspar Bonta
