Nong La has strong family roots, which we explore and build upon for their second location on La Brea Avenue. Simple, straightforward materials lend comfortable familiar- to-the-touch texture to a scaled-up home-like environment. Muted colors allow vibrant ingredients to pop off. The natural world is alluded to in a custom pixellated mural of the sea and handmade tropical wallpaper in muted grays. Floating overhead, these patterns combine with mirror to add unusual depth and perceptual play to the space.
