OEO Studio has overhauled feted Copenhagen restaurant Kadeau, daubing the two Michelin-star eatery’s interiors in dark paint and earthy tones.
Its minimalist new look reflects the original design plan for the restaurant, which aimed to make guests feel as if they were sitting down to dinner in chef Nicolai Nørregaard’s own home. Although it embodies the same spirit, OEO Studio has updated every single surface, introducing new colours, materials and furniture to the restaurant’s interiors.
Now, Kadeau’s wood-and-brick frontage opens onto dark walls, hung with dried herbs and copper-coloured artworks. OEO Studio has installed new pale wood floors and added steel furniture and wooden tables. By the bar area, the restaurant is decked out in a palette of terracotta and dark red, offset by leather and sheepskin seating.
Guests after a more enclosed space can cocoon themselves in Kadeau’s private dining room, which includes an extra-long table and a cabinet filled with preserved fruits and found objects. A new greenhouse space, overlooking the restaurant’s courtyard garden, is set to be completed next year.
