Luma Restaurant Combines Mediterranean Theme with Functionality and Contemporary Design
In recent years, the area of Canggu has grown to become the urban epicentre of the tropical island of Bali. Developing a unique identity that engages the modern travelers and the discerning local expat community in a highly competitive culinary scene becomes the primary intent of Luma's architecture and interior.
The restaurant design combines both the seaside location and Mediterranean theme with the contemporary design and functionality found in hospitality venues in cities around the world. Luma creates a space that caters to the lifestyle of people in Bali, which often involves an element of co-working during the day, followed by socialising with friends in the evening.
The front terrace and amphitheatre-style sunken lounge provide comfortable places to linger from day to night. The main dining area as well as front and back bars are for night-time entertaining.
Cues from the countries bordering the Mediterranean Sea are implemented for the design concept, starting from the rugged coastline to the famed arched doorways and windows, along with a focus on indoor-outdoor living. This concept are then contrasted with a post-modernist style that is largely rooted in Italy’s design capital of Milan and promotes experimentation through playful combinations of texture, colour, shape, and art-level style furniture.
