Roots: A Sensory Journey in the Furnishings of a Restaurant in Padua
A renowned establishment in Padua, Radici, commissioned the first project through an interior design studio, tasked with revisiting the restaurant's décor style.
For the seating part, the Atlanta model (BS430A) was chosen, a chair with an eco-leather seat and fabric backrest. For the second project, I was contacted directly by the owner and chef of the restaurant to renovate part of the bistro's furnishings. I was particularly struck by the walls and the space that would contain our products. The environment appears textured, with pronounced contours and contrasts.
The simulation of a vertical garden on a large portion of the wall is meticulously crafted in every visual detail. Even from a short distance, it seems to perceive the organic matter emanating throughout the space. During this site visit, Chef Andrea Valentinetti presented his request: to visually represent the natural essences that inspire much of the Radici restaurant's menu. A request that frankly had never happened to me before then.
A Chef, a Restaurant, and the Creation of a Culminating Atmosphere
After hours spent drawing, evaluating color samples, essences, and fabrics, we proposed the Lione armchair model (BS469A), with a beech wood frame and cherry-colored lacquered legs, paired with its stool (BS469B) in addition to the Paris model (BS461A).
The econabuk fabric printed with a vintage leather effect provided that "culinary" touch the chef was looking for. At the end of the setup, alas, I returned home with an unstoppable craving for chocolate and mint.
