Gastronomic Project: Patka Restaurant
Have you heard about a restaurant where colorful strings are used to compose the interior design? Well, when in Barcelona you can visit Patka Restaurant and you will be amazed by the beautiful decoration.
The gastronomic offer provided by the restaurant, a fusion between Peruvian and Japanese cuisine, is what inspired this peculiar interior design. The studio in charge of this gastronomic project was the local studio El Equipo Creativo. They have reinterpreted traditional wooden Peruvian cloth-weaving equipment to create angled panels from thick threads stretched across wooden frames. Some of the frames are twined with white cords to contrast with the colourful sections.
An explosion of colours evocative of Peru envelopes the space. This chromatic effect is achieved by the use of a direct reference to the Peruvian loom, offering a surprising combination of colours which contrast with the austere Japanese design, and underlining the deep-rootedness of this artefact in Peruvian arts and crafts.
Located just off Avenida Paralelo, close to Montjuic Park, the restaurant opened as joint venture between chefs Ferran Adrià and his brother Albert, and the owners of the Iglesias brothers.
