In 2010, Autoban’s first interiors project outside of Turkey opened in Hong Kong. 208 Duecento Otto offers rustic Italian cuisine from chef Vinny Lauria of New York’s acclaimed Babbo restaurant. The interior reflects the signature Autoban aesthetic, with its playful spirit and nod to the diversity of Istanbul, while embracing the local culture. Autoban utilised their signature raw materials as seen in steel pillars, marble tabletops and solid walnut floors and ceiling. Ceramic tiles, another signature, are specially designed for the location, blue and white and printed with Chinese illustrations. The project includes products manufactured by De La Espada including Nest lounge chair, Box Sofa, Holy Table, Butterfly chair and Butterfly Bar Stool.

Elle Decoration China awarded 208 Duecento Otto 'Best Restaurant Design' in 2010.
