Red d’Hippo wins a Super Design 2011 trophy
CB’a France Corporate & Retail department's work on the creation of Red d’Hippo, a new restaurants concept, has been awarded a Super Design 2011 prize.
Following a successful launch in January 2011, the fast-service restaurant concept Red d’Hippo can also count on the acknowledgement of the French design world, thanks to the gain of a Super Design 2011 award in the Retail Chains - Hotels, Restaurants and Interior spaces category.
Answering a growing demand from French people to eat well and fast during their lunch breaks, and keeping a connection with the restaurants chain Hippopotamus, Red d’Hippo positions itself as an innovative « Fast Good Food » player.
CB’a created the name of this new concept, making it short as the length of wait, and defined its visual identity, which is both simple and premium. The graphic style lives on several materials inside the restaurants, communicating the nobility and the origin of the meats, core elements of the menus.
The environmental design has been built around a balanced palette of warm and industrial materials, supported by a range of impactful and contemporary colors, with a domination of red, referring to Hippopotamus’ codes. CB’a partnered with Nicolas Robineau (DPLG architect) to conceive and implement the decor of this new kind of restaurant.
Red d’Hippo is doing well: after two successful openings in the CNIT la Défense and in Neuilly-sur-Seine, 25 franchise openings are planned in the upcoming months.
