The cool minimalism of Bali’s BO$$MAN burger bar

Travis Walton Architecture has transformed the notion of the modern burger bar with the cool minimalism and playful design of BO$$MAN

BO$$MAN is a new burger bar Bali’s bustling suburb of Seminyak. Designed by award-winning Melbourne and London-based design studio Travis Walton Architecture, the store is a sleek and ultramodern dining establishment, inspired by deconstructing the multi layered elements of the perfect burger.

Designed with a cool, modern and upmarket style, BO$$MAN stands out against Bali’s competitive design scene with its spirited gangster influenced aesthetic, as exemplified with the double dollar sign textual choice.

Continuing in the Travis Walton tradition of cool minimalism, the standout design features of BO$$MAN are subtle curves of exposed concrete, running through the middle of the venue. The concrete was chosen for its free-flowing form and ability to create smooth curves, inspired by the classic burger bun.

Inside, metallic brass breaks up the concrete and a frill of greenery fringes the interior recalling crisp lettuce on a bun, while gridded feature lights dotting the ceiling mimic a dusting of fresh poppy seeds.

“The BO$$MAN brand inspired the use of ‘gangsta bling,’ and as we worked from a mood board littered with gold foil and neon dollar signs,” says Travis Walton, Director of Travis Walton Architecture, “One of our final touches was a noticeably oversized signature neon BO$$ sign folded into a corner pocket of the ceiling.”

The BO$$MAN restaurant showcases design that has been crafted with Seminyak’s jet-setting international clientele in mind: a hip urban eatery suiting the sweet brioche buns and grass-fed Wagyu inside.
