Davis Ink is a Californian based duo of designers that delivers some of the most memorable public spaces in the area. Don Chido is one of their most recent projects where their imagination and inventiveness led to an amazing space for a Mexican restaurant.
We don’t know where to start because there are so many elements that should be brought to discussion. Even though it might not look like the classical traditional Mexican place you will be surprised by the subtlety of Mexican elements they used and reconfigured. For example they used traditional Mexican steel gates that were suspended to the ceiling to create light fixtures, they reused traditional spindle columns that they painted and brought together to form tables. On the walls at a closer look you will notice that the diagonal stripes are made out of wood planks and tiles.
They did a great job in bringing out bright and bold colors that make the space inviting and warm. They have an open tortilla bar and another cozy bar that welcomes people to join and mingle.
We leave you the pleasure to discover more interesting and quirky details.
