Il Lago Dei Cigni Restaurant, St. Petersburg
Restaurant / Russia / HBA London / Completed in 2013
The creators of Buddha Bar St. Petersburg built this new restaurant in St. Petersburg featuring Italian haute-cuisine. The centerpiece of the interior is devoted to "Il Lago dei Cigni" - Swan Lake" in Italian. HBA's interior design carefully frames the surface of the water with pastoral greens seen through panoramic, floor-to-ceiling windows. The fragile beauty of Russian nature is underscored by an exceptionally unique column/chandelier in the form of a weeping willow tree with a trunk made of selenite and its swaying branches represented by pendants. The northern shore of the lake is edged by the finest materials from around the world: Selenite from India, teak from Indonesia, furnishings from Italy and lamps made of English design in the Czech Republic.
