Buck.Studio creates surreal ambience of a dream world at patisserie in Wroclaw
Nanan is a is a contemporary patisserie based at the Wrocław market square, Poland. The project, which won Hospitality Design Award in NYC and Restaurant & Bar Design Award in London in 2017, was designed by Wroclaw-based Buck.Studio.
“Nanan means sweetmeats in French and sweets play the leading role in this signature design of a modern patisserie. The deliberately minimalist interior provides a subtle setting for the protagonists: finely decorated sophisticated cakes and éclairs made with meticulous care. The speciality of this patisserie, the éclair, has inspired the interior design and the visual identity of Nanan. The cake’s oval shape is echoed in the central island counter with display that operates almost like a glass cabinet in a jeweller’s shop. Its positioning provides room for the flow of customers who can choose and admire trays of tempting bijou sweets and small works of the art of confectionary. Éclairs have also inspired the bespoke design of lamps and other details of the interior such as mirrors, door handles, coat hangers and veneer perforation. An éclair motif has naturally lent itself to the patisserie’s visual identification. The whole place is given a context of soft, velvet, pink walls with arched doorways. Combined with delicate shining brass details it builds a rather surreal ambience of a dream world,” explains Buck.Studio
