Dinnerware designs centered mainly on soft oval and round shapes so as to make handling of dishes easier, which is very important in fast-pace buffet dining.

As a final result, careful approach to colors, shapes and patterns in designing concepts for food presentation helped create dinnerware  that complemented the dining offer of the restaurant and accentuated the  style of its interior.
