Bronda Restaurant

The restaurant Bronda is located in the heart of Helsinki by the Esplanadi park. Bronda brings the vibrancy of a contemporary Mediterranean restaurant to an interesting street level space and creates a new urban spot with a relaxed atmosphere.

The restaurant interior has three main spaces: cocktail bar next to the entrance, 7 meters high dining hall and private cabinets at the back of the space. The cocktail bar is a low intimate space made of warm and colourful materials such as brass, wood, marble and leather. The pattern of the tiled floor in the front bar has got its inspiration from the Helsinki sea chart. The custom made giant walk-in wine cabinet separates the cocktail bar from the dining hall. The large windows make the dining hall part of the street life with exiting views to and from the restaurant. The cabinet space can be divided into four smaller rooms or it can be used as an extension of the dining hall.

In addition to the spatial design Futudesign has also designed most of the furniture, besides the chairs and the light fixtures.

Bronda is the fifth restaurant Futudesign has completed for the successful restaurateur duo Tomi Björck and Matti Wikberg. The previous restaurant Farang is located in Stockholm and the other three restaurants are in Helsinki.
