ÄNG is a Michelin star restaurant that stands in rural surroundings at Ästad Vingård, in Sweden.
It was designed by famous Danish firm Norm Architects, who set out to create a place able to deliver a unique, unforgettable sensory experience, combining nature, art and local cuisine.
ÄNG guests are welcomed on the restaurant’s two floors, both decorated with specially created artworks which use raw materials sourced nearby.
On the upper level, where guests’ start and end their meals, the aim was to create the impression of a modern glasshouse.
The large windows provide total immersion in the surrounding external environment, where the light which changes during the day and the varying weather conditions can further enrich and shape the character of the experience.
The lower floor contains the actual dining-room, to which guests descend to savour the main dishes.
It is a top-class menu supported by fine wines chosen by customers in the restaurant’s beautiful wine cellar, also carefully designed down to every tiny detail and an integral part of any visit.
Norm Architects chose the Le Reverse stone-look collection to cover a large part of the building, cleverly combined with a local natural oak wood and design features styled by Karimoku and Keiji Ashizawa.
The Elegance pattern was selected in Dune colour for the wall and floor tiles and for bespoke furnishings including the washbasins, the counters, the benches and the architectural features which support the artworks.The floor tiles of the cellar were made to measure for this project, in the Carved structured variant, again in the Dune colour.
