Specialising in high-end, individually prepared desserts, patisseries and beverages all prepared on site, the interior of Oko Dessert Kitchen was designed to incorporate a contemporary and functional aesthetic up-market enough to reflect the premium-priced offerings, yet not too grand to discourage casual coffee and ice cream customers.

White Carrara marble, gold, porcelain and timber accents hint at a traditional French patisserie or Italian gelato shop, while use of reflection, line and form lets the modern and stylish nature of the desserts steal the spotlight.

In this way, the design reflects the unique nature and personality of our client’s product offering without allowing the space to be pigeon-holed as a cafe, patisserie or regular full-service restaurant. The store has traded very strongly since its inception and is often packed ‘til nearly midnight. Images by Patrick Reynolds.
