We absolutely loved working on this dream project for Seeds by Michelin-star chef Bruno Loubet ~ the first new F&B retailer to sign on as part of Brisbane Airport’s $40 million redevelopment of its Domestic Terminal, which is set to open for trade late 2018.
Seeds offers fresh, natural and sustainable food including poke bowls, fruit salads, smoothies, juices and coffee. Seeds promises to deliver some of Bruno Loubet’s famous salad and dressing recipes which, up and till now, are only available in his high-end restaurants.
We really enjoyed working closely together with John Chapman, CEO of Airport Retail Enterprises. John engaged us to create a series of square stackable protein pots ~ small bowls that will be on display with the proteins that can be added to the salad offerings such as chicken, haloumi etc. Three complementing colours were chosen for variety and contrast with the Seeds logo imprinted on the side of each bowl.
Furthermore we were given creative freedom by John to create a stunning serving display which is to contain the salad of the day. John asked us to create a display stand to house the extra large serving bowl, to make the salad really stand out and to create a very special feature alongside the rows of protein pots. After meeting with John and hearing his thoughts I immediately knew what I wanted to create and went on the hunt for a local woodworker that could help me achieve the vision. After a few rounds of adjustments, a gorgeous timber display stand with an organic branch structure and natural timber base was created and I could not have been happier with the result.
The extra large serving bowl was custom created to nestle in the timber stand, and our gorgeous rust on white porcelain finish was chosen to match. Not only does this finish provide a beautiful crisp contrast against the timber, the matte rust glaze will show off any salad beautifully with greens, reds and purple tones looking striking against the deep rust colour.
Seeds is set to open later this year and I cannot wait to see the final display with salads and proteins on show.
