Details: A restaurant branding and interior design project by Hong Kong-based Substance, Bibo occupies a space in an elegant heritage building on Hollywood Road amongst antique shops and art galleries. Fine French cuisine served in a setting filled with works of modern and street art.

"The inspiration came in the form of 1930's Art Deco - a design aesthetic modern enough to serve as a backdrop to constantly changing and extremely eclectic artistic expression, but also elegant and comfortable enough as a spatial environment in which to serve classic French gastronomy." says Substance.

"The connection between the decade, art works, and cuisine was made through a craftily invented story of an abandoned office building of a formerly prosperous French tram company, now occupied by street artists who express themselves by layering their art on surfaces with a history, tagging their ideas on the physical space that has since become known as 'Bibo'."
