S ifting and winnowing through the big, wide world of products to find just the right mix for creating unique and competitive restaurant environments is no small task. And neither is keeping up with the steady stream of new options, enhancements and product technologies hitting the market. rd+d's Products Guide is here to help. On the following pages, we take a deep dive into 10 mission-critical categories, offering snapshots of new and exciting products, ideas and insights from designers in the field. Why this special, once-a-year focus on products? Because from floors to ceilings and bars to bathroom fixtures, every product decision made for restaurant projects impacts the guest experience, the staff experience, and the owner's odds for achieving operational and financial success. The products featured inside are diverse and represent some of the biggest design trends driving restaurant design today. Themes such as neutral colors and natural appearances, mid-century-inspired styles, metallics and mosaics, and statement lighting and wallcoverings shine through. This is, after all, the age of Instagram. Manufacturers are hip to that fact and are more conscious than ever of restaurants' collective need to create unique, shareable, Instagram-worthy environments. As we hope this special section proves, designers and operators enjoy a fast-growing array of products that can help them do just that while at the same time meeting the even bigger need to be restaurant-worthy as well. • Bar Equipment, Design & Storage • Building Products & Materials • Flooring • Furniture • Lighting • Outdoor Furnishings • Restroom Fixtures & Equipment • Wallcoverings & Ceilings • Windows & Doors • Back of House PRODUCT GUIDE THE N O V E M B E R / D E C E M B E R 2 0 1 8 • r e s t a u r a n t d e v e l o p m e n t + d e s i g n • 3 5
