"Ombi shows the in-between factor”

Jason Chavenson

Michelin Star Chef - Bar Spero

Space video structure:

"phase tabs" let guests guide themselves through interior / outdoor spaces + sections of the menu. This emulates an in-person experience & organizes spatial information (inspired by VR walkthroughs).

Experience > efficiency:

Experiential info (visual, sensory) is prioritized over location to connect restaurant-goers with the best experience for a specific occasion. Users browse a city through a video thumbnail UI rather than a map (videos are organized by experience > location > creator).

Designing into users’ decision making process:

1. Filter by experience type & neighborhood (e.g. dinner in Mission District)

2. Preview videos of restaurants’ ambiance & menu to create expectations

3. Share / choose: share web-app link w/ friends in message threads

4. Book & go: make a reservation, open directions, save to profile
