Sauvage by Triboro, United States

Opinion by Richard Baird.

Branding and illustrated menu by New York design studio Triboro for Brooklyn cafe and bar Sauvage

Sauvage is a Brooklyn-based cafe and cocktail bar from Joshua Boissy and Krystof Zizka, the duo behind Maison Premiere. It is described as being reflective of the staple establishments of New York and Paris, and has a menu of French-accented American dishes. This is also reflected throughout its interior design, a mix of mosaic flooring, brass rimmed circular tables, bent wood furniture, ornamental mirrors, brass fixtures and fittings, and a curved bar with a white marble top.

Sauvage’s visual identity, designed by New York studio Triboro, mirrors some of the period European and American interior influences, whilst working in individual personality through multi-colour and form. This runs across business cards, menus, coffee cups, coasters and tote bags, and included signage and web design.

Bockholmengruppen is a Stockholm based restaurant group and owners of both Nytorget 6 and Nybrogatan 38. The group recently expanded, taking over Le Bar and opening Österlånggatan 17 in its place, a modern local restaurant with a menu of home cooked dishes with a twist, located at the centre of Stockholm and attracting locals and tourists alike.

Scandinavian design studio Lobby Design worked with the Bockholmengruppen to create a visual identity that would compliment Österlånggatan 17’s modern interpretation of a traditional local restaurant, express its easy-going and unpretentious atmosphere and convey a sense of good quality. This was achieved through a series of bright and whimsical illustrations and a contrast of type, set across a variety of assets. These included menus, coffee cups, coasters, takeaway packaging, business cards and website.
