Wrocław, Poland – Attention all late-Gen X’ers and early-millennials: there’s now a restaurant that’s a ticket back to adolescence. Its name is Biggy, and you can find it in the Polish city of Wrocław. Created by Buck.Studio – a local multidisciplinary practice specializing in hospitality and retail interior design – the comfort-food eatery is what designers Dominika Buck and Paweł Buck call a ‘full immersion into 1990s American street-life culture’.
From fashion to music to movies and television, modern culture is swinging back to the decade in a big way. Spatial design can – and is – helping companies, retailers and restauranteurs cash into this ongoing, profitable wave of nostalgia. Biggy is just one case in point. Its interiors definitely file under ‘90s revival’, but Buck.Studio took a visual approach that gives the restaurant a contemporary edge for the enjoyment of all.
