Case Study — Vyn Restaurant by Daniel Berlin
In southern Sweden, in the picturesque and culinary Österlen, you will find one of Scandinavia’s most extraordinary restaurants. Top chef Daniel Berlin, who used to run Daniel Berlin Krog, and who has been awarded a remarkable two Michelin stars in the prestigious Michelin Guide, opened VYN Restaurant this autumn. In an old barn, located on a hill with a grand view of the Baltic Sea, this absolutely world-class restaurant and the appurtenant boutique hotel and wine bar have been established. Here, all your senses will be awakened, in a unique atmosphere created through beautiful and warm architecture. Contributing to this amazing setting, CHEVRON has provided beautiful plank floors for the restaurant as well as the hotel that reflect the architecture as well as the cuisine’s precision and attention to detail.
Interior designer Lisa Mannheimer from the architectural firm Fojab Arkitekter explains that her objective was to form a connected whole and turn Daniel’s vision into reality – to create a place for a kind of holistic experience, where the restaurant and the food are in focus, but where the interior also becomes an important part of the whole experience. She explains that the keywords of the project have been Scandinavian, Nordic, local with a touch of international elegance, personality, craftsmanship, art and natural materials.
“My idea and intention were to create a place where the materials used give you a feeling of high quality. The materials should ”speak” to the place and feel like the natural choice for VYN in particular“ – Daniel Berlin
Together with Daniel, Lisa chose floors made of long and wide planks with butterfly joints, treated with the colour ”201 Ljunghusen” from Chevron; a beautiful, natural hard wax oil.
“The quality as well as the ambitious aim of finishing the project on time were vital. CHEVRON provides quality work, and the end product was exactly what I wanted it to be” – Daniel Berlin
