Together with a brilliant team of designers and producers at M ss ng P eces, I designed interior and exterior elements for Small World, the Google Translate restaurant.  Located on the corner of Bowery and Kenmare in NYC, the restaurant was open for a special four day presentation from April 15 to April 18. Each day a brilliant team of chefs cooked up cuisines inspired by places all around the globe.

“Whether you start things off with “bon appétit,” “dobrou chuť” or “itadakimasu,” it’s over meals that we build community and connect,” according to the announcement from Google. “In celebration of just that, Google Translate is opening an interactive pop-up restaurant in New York City. Languages from around the world will be your guide as our guest chefs take you on a journey through the lens of food — our universal language.”

This video from Zagat is quite informative...
