Pastafiore is an Italian fast-food self-service restaurant located in Plaza Urquinaona in Barcelona. The objective was to achieve a fresh and recognizable environment which would create an intimate atmosphere, far from the typical fast-food establishment.
The suggestive plasticity and expressivity of pasta is the starting point of a different lecture of the space and a modern image.
The main wall is lined with a great backlit screen divided into quarters of whitewashed pine wood and glass filled with dry pasta: fetuccini, colored ribbons, etc.
The restaurant is divided in two areas by a series of stained pine wood containers with interior lights. These volumes favor intimacy while creating different zones. A suggestive atmosphere is produced using light and the subtle textures of materials, creating a warm sensation and environmental harmony.
