Inspired from Hong Kong's 'Bing
Studio Unit remark that they strongly believed that 'Bing Sutts' should be preserved and should continue to evolve with the ever-changing landscapes of the city and the tastes of its people.
The studio started by giving a twist to the concept of 'Bing Sutt' by extracting its fundamental characteristics and mixing these elements with the industrial rawness of metal, concrete, stainless steel and brick. The colour theme - white, red and black, came from the original design of the milk bottle and challenges traditional colours found in the old cafes.
Depicted in director Wong KarWai's films new moments that intend to immerse users within the same cinematic scenes were created. Elements such as classic window frames, translucent wire glass, calligraphic menus and mosaic floor tiles come from traditional 'Bing Sutts'.
Metal gates and wall advertisements evoke the gritty backstreets of 60s Hong Kong, and neon sign washes the interior with a subtle orange glow, offering an ambience reminiscent of Hong Kong's fast disappearing, neon infused street scenes. All the above is presented within the simple black, white and red colour palette, giving these recognizable elements a stylish interpretation.
