Geneva burger bar Sando has airy Japanese-inspired interiors

It’s a sophisticated take on fast-food culture

High minimalist design meets fast food culture at this Geneva burger bar, designed by Sapid Studio using natural materials and Japanese design elements.

Boroboro means ‘something repaired’ and refers to the act of extending an object’s life through reuse and repair. This concept runs through art and furniture in the restaurant interiors, with white-painted walls and alternating wood tones offsetting hanging textiles made from recycled fabric and stitched with characters from the burger bar’s name by Lundi Piscine.

Sapid founders Cecile-Diama Samb and Michael Piderit incorporated several details that recall Japanese dining culture, including long window counters similar to ramen bars and a stainless steel table that echoes the kitchen counters in omakase restaurants.

Mosaic tiled floors, speckled Bit Stools by Normann Copenhagen, made from recycled plastic, and metal cafe tables complete the look, lending Sando a relaxed feel at home that works with its no-fuss menu of sauce-doused burgers and fries.
