Designing spaces that are going to be used by many and very different people is not an easy task, there is a trick to it. Design professionals have decided in 2019 that the best way to meet this challenge in restaurant design is … looking at the wall!
The decorative MSD Panels add colour and texture almost instantaneous to the commercial premises, are good value for money and don’t require much time.
The rich textures of aged brick, wood, concrete or stone of different shapes, colors and finishes bring personality and inspiration to food and drink establishments: they almost magically transform them into comfortable, warm places isolated from the outside world. They can even acoustically isolate them from the daily commotion of the cities, with the bonus of comfort.
This year colors take a bold step in restaurants, beyond the white on white, and without too much of a big deal, they pursue a natural effect, without visual clutter. The new designs incorporate a seventies feeling: simple and natural but at the same time bright, with touches of metal and a lot, a lot of texture.
The color palettes are bright and saturated with natural light, evoking the feeling of being outdoors, in a world that otherwise seems to live more and more within itself.
This audacity can be seen in the combination of different finishes that turn the creative work of design into a unique decorative atmosphere, with a singular, unforgettable personality. Restaurants that are a treat for the eyes, and where you always want to return!

Alung Wong and his team have participated with the MSD Dress your wall ® concrete panels in the installation of I.T Blue Block, a new fashion shop concept that is a cutting-edge, style event among the young executives of Shenzen, the technological capital of China.
Our distributors in Shanghai have completed the urban look designed for this important mall, close to the Internet hub of Shenzen. This megaurbe, located 17 km north of Hong Kong, was a humble town just four decades ago. Today it is a global technological hub, the headquarters of great telecommunications giants, the third busiest port in the world and one of the cities with the most millionaires on the planet.
Alung Wong’s team has demonstrated the extraordinary speed, precision and efficiency with which the MSD concrete panels are placed by expert hands. The result is an avant-garde space, ideal for one of the flagship stores of this innovative multi-brand store.
The vertical concrete panels, which imitate material worn and exposed to the elements, are the ideal coating to frame a unique and immersive shopping experience, in which fashion is part of a personal attitude and a concrete lifestyle.
The new I.T mall combines areas of clothing and trends, food and beverages, household items, shoes and accessories, among others. The different spaces converge in a unique atmosphere of harmony and contrasts, where a new leisure concept for shopping awaits customers.
Scandinavian design, an aesthetic style built on very clear concepts of minimalism and functionality, has been highly influential since its early beginnings, at the start of the 20th century.
Decorative ideas flow non-stop to the rest of the world from the Nordic countries, and it seems that they will continue to do so for a long time.
Here is a sneak peak of ten Scandinavian design trends for next year:
- The right balance of colours and materials. Less is still more.
- Furniture and storage items as decorative objects. Clothes racks, cupboards and closets are incorporated as design elements.
- Choose a piece with personality to highlight the ambiance: better if it combines smooth and rounded lines with angular corners.
- Use bright blue wisely to provide soul to completely white interiors.
- Introduce the leather “look” on some furnishings: rugs, sofa throws or upholstered chairs.
- Scandinavian style adds natural elements to its designs, which bring interest to the ensemble and lighten the visual environment: feather patterns or feathers themselves, created artificially in different materials are fashionable.
- Gray coverings in light tones are back again at the forefront of fashion.
- Reserve a space in your home just for yourself, free of technological connections: a sanctuary to rest the senses.
- Monochrome art: very useful for rounding off Scandinavian style, considering that colour is, for lovers of this style, the materialization of a pure sensitivity.
- Connect with nature: use finishings somewhere in your personal space to help you evoke their rustic beauty, such as wood or stone.
