Describing the idea, studio MOTO, which was based in 2017 by Thomas Hick and Mo Vandenberghe, launched a press release saying: “The focus lies on identity, functionality and context. The typical elements of a friterie, such as the recognisable shape, the awning, the glass counter and the neon sign on top are all present in this design. But by providing the friteries with a mirrored facade, they enter into a dynamic dialogue with their environment.”
The friteries can be positioned in distinguished areas round Brussels and can open in 2019.
