Design studio FormaFatal ha recently completed the interiors for Burrito Loco, a Mexican Fast-Food chain with a long tradition in Prague. The design team used a bright palette which extends to the sheet metal, paintings, ceramic tiles, and furniture used.
“We have intentionally replaced the characteristic Mexican tiles by monochrome tiles and we have brought the touch of Mexico through some symbols typical for Mexico,” explains FormaFatal. The essential element is the cactus symbol, which is dominant in the interior and stylized in different forms.
Other features include sombreros and garlands. The hanging lights are made of typical Mexican hats. The garlands could not be missing at any Mexican party, so they are hanging on the trees nearby each tin stand with refreshment. There are combined garlands of small light bulbs and garlands decorated with a cut pattern in the Burrito Loco interiors. The sombreros, as well as the white plastic garlands, are ordered directly from Mexico.
The cladding of the corrugated sheet metal symbolizes Mexican residences. The applications on the pillows are in the shape of stylized sun that Burrito Loco has in its logos.
