Kailo, Restaurant Concept
Kailo is an expression of the very best in service, function and interior trends within the food and beverage industry. It’s an exciting landscape, where hospitality brands are emerging as the next generation of true powerhouses, able to capture consumer’s attention in a way usually only reserved for fashion, beauty and tech brands. FormRoom established that a market gap existed for a luxury, contemporary take on sustainable dining. One which operates in the mindset of the health and wellbeing trend but with the visual cues of a temptingly modern luxury environment, celebrating seasonal European cuisine. Starting with the name Kailo, which is a loose translation from the original Indo-European word for “health”, the studio draws significant inspiration from the Roman era. This is evident throughout all touchpoints, including the menu, graphic design and interior architecture. The grand central bar and sweeping arched staircase anchor the space, taking design cues from ancient Roman courtyards where all rooms would branch from. Surrounding this conceptual take on the iconic roman pillar with a bar set with obsidian stone are the dining spaces, a more casual co-working space with a deli serving up fast casual adaptations of the main restaurant’s menu and to the rear; an exclusive private chef’s table experience.
