The team of Sergey Makhno and Vasiliy Butenko designed the concept for the interior of the Kiev, Ukraine restaurant, Twister. The two-story dining area was inspired by rain and, you guessed it, tornadoes.

The upper story is made to look like tornado-shaped balconies that you can dine in. The walls and ceiling of the bar area are covered in sticks giving it more of a “calm after the storm” type feel. The comfortable-looking tufted cone-like chairs in the bar area are a nice addition for extra seating. Hovering overhead at various heights, the light fixtures resemble raindrops. They chose warm colors and natural tones throughout to give an overall sense of comfort and calm.
