Hidden Dimsum By Night,

2018, Nytorv 19, Copenhagen.

Visual story-telling conceptualisation, poster design and production, wallpaper layout, neon sign design and production.

Interior design for Hidden Dimsum by Night, a new basement bar for the existing Hidden Dimsum Restaurant in the centre of Copenhagen. Designed in collaboration with Januar Lee. Plastered with vintage-inspired street posters and donned with the glow of its very own neon sign, Hidden Dimsum by Night’s interior design transports customers at first glance to the iconic street food scene of Hong Kong within the walls of one of Copenhagen’s very own basement bars. Upon closer examination, the posters tell the comprehensive story of the Hidden Dimsum restaurant and the family behind it.
