The melting pot of cultures found at Llama, the Copenhagen restaurant that serves South American food with dashes of Scandinavian flair is really interesting. Mexican tacos, Peruvian anticuchos, ceviche of fresh fish, and liquors such as tequila and rum can be enjoyed in a friendly and colourful environment. The interior design was done by two of the most famous Danish studios of design and architecture, Kilo and BIG (Bjarke Ingels Group), a meeting of seemingly irreconcilable styles.
The Llama extends in a basement that is accessed by means of a light glass staircase supported by T metal beams. The open space that houses the reception area, the dining room and the bar counter were treated like an immense “container” and covered by tens of thousands of differently coloured cement tiles, handmade in Mexico. Decorations and different nuances follow one another along floors and walls without interruption, becoming the backdrop to the essential dark wood furnishings. The simple lines that come from Northern Europe and the strong colours of Hispanic derivation are the trump cards of the Llama restaurant.
