Formica Restaurant in CasaDecor - 2004

Formica Casadecor_01

Project for a restaurant of the Formica firm in CasaDecor 2004. The catering was directed by the team of Sergi Arola.

The only premise was to use the materials provided by the firm, so a great variety of laminated decorations and surface materials were used in an imaginative way, providing new possibilities for the product.

The space is divided in two areas: the restaurant and the bar. The first, more sober, is defined by the use of a combination of birch and Zebrano panels on the walls. In various points, undulated bands of the same material are aligned from floor to ceiling as a backlit lattice which becomes a screen emitting a warm light.

Photographs are present in the background as on the tables. The restaurant is transformed into an exhibition of the snapshots by María Espeus on Digiform and Compacto.

Color defines the bar area: a dynamic and daring space. Intense tones of laminated Velour form the side walls while the background is occupied by a translucent and backlit mural with a sequence of wine bottles acting as a great light.
