MTMDESIGN is an interior design studio founded in 2013 by Barcelona architect Max Trullás Moreno in Shanghai, China. We are specialized in hospitality and commercial projects. We have experience in multiple Asian markets like China, Hong Kong, The Philippines, Korea, Indonesia and Vietnam.
We craft every project as a unique story. Each context, location, concept and client deserve a unique narrative as an answer to their needs.
We like to engage with the final user, creating comfortable environments and emotional experiences with a fun and creative twist. Because life is too short to dine or work in a boring or uncomfortable space!
MTMDESIGN work has been published in multiple magazines and online design websites like AD China, Elle Decoration, BOB Magazine Korea, Officesnapshot and Designboom. MTMDESIGN was also selected in AD100 2017, as one of the most influential designers in China.
Shanghai-Poke pioneers, Little Catch, commissioned MTMDESIGN its new neighborhood spot. For this location we decided to play with the island seashore huts inspiration in a contemporary way.
The layout is divided into two defined areas. Arrival room with open prep kitchen and display counter were to place orders. The counter has a corrugated white translucent panels from were they hang the menu boxes. Two picnic communal tables with bespoke lighting fixtures complete the setting.
A few steps down we have the gallery room seating 20 plus guests. A longitudinal bar along the windows is completed with custom designed bench booths, built in teak and white expanded metal mesh.
Exposed concrete ceilings contrast with the organic tree trunk pendant light. Rotating artwork on the walls complete the decoration for this room.
A white corrugated “hut” box hosts the back of house services like production kitchen, toilets and dishwashing areas.
