The train cabin-style enclosures are made from natural materials for an earthy look and feel.

The Amsterdam-based design studio Tjep has created some interesting elements for the interior of the Fabbrica restaurant in Bergen, the Netherlands. The train cabin-style dining pods offer patrons a cozy and relaxed place to eat, and their unfinished timber frames create an earthy and authentic look.

Tjep decided to use natural materials rather than painted surfaces, gloss and shine. The designers describe how the current economic climate affected their innovative approach:

In Bergen we show materials instead of using painted surfaces. We did this to be more in touch with the economic context of the moment. It’s not time for Bling Bling anymore, people want more authenticity and less entertainment.
