A Velvet Palace for Delicate Sweets

Step Inside Nanan Patisserie by Buck Studio
Posted by Gestalten—03/2017

Nanan means sweetmeats in French and sweets play the leading role in this signature design developed by Buck Studio for a modern patisserie in Poland. The deliberately minimalist interior provides a subtle setting for the protagonists: finely decorated sophisticated cakes and éclairs. The speciality of this patisserie, the éclair, has inspired the interior design and the visual identity of Nanan with its oval shape. Eclairs 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.
