Ena Restaurant, Dubai

The brainchild of Greek entrepreneur, Lena Maniatis, Ena offers authentic Greek cuisine, inspired by a genuine love for the ‘real’ food you find in homes and villages. It’s all done in a highly distinctive, modern setting, and we were delighted to be involved in its design. The restaurant’s interior evokes the experience of sitting on a rocky island, under an olive tree, watching the sea by candlelight. And because Lena insists on using natural ingredients in her dishes, we focused on natural materials – especially different types of stone – using them as a backdrop for contemporary Greek artworks.
