Excerpt: Langos Bar is a café designed by the architectural firm GRAU Architects. Although the space is only 12 sqm, it fits all the necessary equipment. Our approach was to create a visually simple but robust design concept based on a 10 x 10 square grid. We inserted an available box of white tiles, steel bars and stainless steel in the rough cement finished unit. The only colour we used is red, which creates an accent and is well connected with the visual identity.

Project Description

(“Text as submitted by the Architects”)

Langos Bar is a portion of tiny street food in Bratislava, located in an old market hall in the historical part of the city centre. It serves langos, a traditional street food dish from Hungary that uses fried sourdough flatbreads to deliver a combination of sour cream, ketchup, cheese, and garlic. However, founded by local heroes Lukas Hesko; Robo Nagy, the new LANGOS BAR concept brings a different approach.

Topped with pecorino, pastrami or shrimps, it shows countless options for upgrading this traditional Hungarian food. All of that is paired with drinks and natural wine from the region. The place has the ambition to create a spot for locals where they can hang out, but also a must-eat place for tourists visiting the city like Jekyll and Hyde. The day is immaculate, but the party begins when the night comes.

We inserted an available box of white tiles, steel bars and stainless steel in the rough cement finished unit. The only colour we used is red, which creates an accent and is well connected with the visual identity.

The identity, designed by local firm Nice Guy represented by Matej Spanik, revolves around a very satisfied and round face icon designed in collaboration with Tomas Rybar, aka Sicknico. Their approach was to create a visually strong and bold identity that can reinterpret this modern concept while keeping the character of the concept authentic and easy to understand. They wanted to express the pleasure that eating langos brings.
