MTMDESIGN brings Spanish flair to ‘Tomatito’ restaurant design in Saigon

“MTMDESIGN completes the colorful and exciting design of ‘Tomatito’ in Vietnam, in homage to traditional Spanish culture. The project marks the third incarnation of an original creation completed in shanghai back in 2014. This new restaurant is designed in the style of a casual and fun-oriented, Spanish tapas restaurant and bar.

Located in an existing 1930’s warehouse townhouse in the heart of Saigon, the space seats around 100 people in three main spaces: lounge, dining rooms and bar area.

The designer has divided the main dining room by a bold, see-through red cabinet that filters the views while providing a visual anchor to the overall space. the area links to the lounge and opens up to the balconies with red vintage blinds. The second dining area is structured around the bar, generating a more casual dining experience. the high bar is crowned by a neon ‘Tomatito’ sign that lights up the room while semi-open iron windows provide glimpses into the kitchen.

Upon entering, the customer is welcomed by a vintage polka-dot vespa that also doubles as a dj booth. The lounge area, located next to the entrance, is decorated with custom designed wallpapers by batabasta, vintage artwork from barcelona’s flea markets and neon sculptures in tribute to picasso’s bull heads. the cabinet displays an original bullfighter’s dress, providing a theatrical backdrop to the main room. overall, the decoration and design plays between refined and industrial, vintage and modern, paying homage to spain’s traditional tapas bar and culture.
