“Delicious bowls, bubble teas, holiday feeling”. These are the three concepts that define the young and casual Sesh Bowls restaurant, which is located in the Glattzentrum shopping centre in Zurich. The restaurant uses organic, fresh, seasonal ingredients that are carefully mixed in poke-like dishes and served in beautiful, handmade looking bowls.

Poke is a raw fish salad that originated in Hawaii, where it is served as an appetizer or main course, and has been in vogue since it was introduced a few years ago in trendy restaurants in Western countries as a healthy dish. As for bubble tea, it is a sweet, flavoured tea based drink blended with fruit, fruit juices or milk, which can also be iced.

When undertaking the design of the restaurant, Nader Interior took all this into account, including the serene and refreshing “holiday feeling” that the restaurant offers through its cuisine. The studio did this by adding whimsical details, such as swings as seating at some tables, plants cascading from the high ceilings and a marine-inspired mural on the back wall, a concept that is echoed in the bar tops.

Selecting the right materials for an outdoor design is key to connecting the new design of the rest of the home and guarantee a nice flow between the spaces. The existing interior kitchen had a bit more depth with deeper colours on the kitchen island, so a calming tone needed to be selected to connect the two spaces in harmony.

Speaking about Cosentino product chosen for this project, a exclusive quartzite with anti-stain treatment, Ash said, “Sensa Platino allowed for the design of the outdoor kitchen in its expansive size, to feel quite calm and restful. It has a beautiful oceanic veining, with blues and green tones, and in some lights, it's a bit grey and dark as well, so it offers a lot of vibrancy. I think when we use natural stone, it’s a special material to use. It's more sophisticated than tiles, and it worked on the bigger span as well, almost eight meters long of backsplash. I chose Sensa Platino for the calmness of its colouring. It is quite moody whilst also being serene and it has such beautiful movement in it. The colour was a real specification for this project, because it did have to link back into the interior of the house.”

Describing the rest of the project, Ash continued, “The counters were poured concrete. We selected that because there were so many different forms that we wanted to do on the countertops, and we wanted it deep in one part shallower in another part, it had the little green egg, and there was a front bar on the front of it, so we were able to manipulate it much easier. There is a sink as well which just offered us a bit more than using natural stone or similar for this design, and this material didn't take away from the backsplash.”

Wilson went on to explain, “Having used Cosentino on other projects, I knew that it was perfect for the specification on this application and the colour choice available allowed us to deliver the desired look and feel. Technically it was ideal due to its inherent strength and allowed us to be creative with the fit-out elements being designed to carry it and outwork fit for purpose requirements.”

Finally, Ash mentioned, “As with any project, I think it’s so important for architects and designers to visit showrooms like the Cosentino Showroom in Dublin to view the full range and spec of the slabs before making a final decision!’
