Restaurant design: The Poké Co. Claremont’s blend of youthful vibes and Insta-worthy aesthetics

When Andrew Flanagan, owner of  The Poké Co. in Claremont, briefed Jenine Bruce from Lacuna Interior Design Studio on the design of the eatery, he knew he wanted an interior that embodied the youthful, bright nature of the brand and the food it makes.

The result is a space that is both calming and totally Instagrammable. “For the first time we introduced both brand colours,” Andrew elaborates. “The soft, sweet hues of pink and vibrant teal are an antidote to the stresses of modern-day life. The light and bright palette embodies the South Africa summer, reflecting the brand’s casual personality through the creation of a warm and inviting space.”

Stand-out features include the circular coffee hatch window, seating featuring artwork by Wonder Meyer, and terrazzo elements juxtaposed with matte black fittings and the rounded curves of the doorways. “With the design, music and layout we try to enable the customer to escape their busy days, unwind and be at ease in our spaces, leaving feeling re-energised,” says Andrew.

With intimate nooks and comfy seating, it’s the perfect spot for a healthy lunch or a coffee to go.
