A hot new look for a hot pot spot
At HaiDiLao, Chinese hot pots aren’t just a meal, they’re an experience. These restaurants know how to make a bold impression with traditional comfort food. To give their Irvine location an equally bold look, we used eye-catching patterns inspired by traditional Chinese pottery in celadon and red. Fresh, fun details like custom-made birdcage lamps and red accents on the chairs livened up the space. The rest of the finishes were kept neutral to provide the balance needed to appreciate such colorful gestures.
