Restaurant in a hotel in Diamond Beach, Nusa Penida.

The ocean’s movement and species inspired it.

The one that inspired us to shape this Restaurant in Nusa Penida was the giant clamshell. Its curvilinear exoskeleton with a hard, rigid, and outer covering serves individuals as a defensive element to protect themselves from external aggressions from predators and as an anchorage point for their muscles and organs. In other words, for protection and support. We aimed to merge the people into this protected space, ocean, and self by diluting boundaries and highlighting everything that connects us.
