"...Avoiding Seville's commonplace nostalgia where other restaurants are always looking for a historical revival from the past, Casaplata is about looking for their own singular image..."

Who’d have thought that mixing two of the biggest trends in recent interior design and architecture would actually work – the softness of pastel hues and the harshness of concrete. Introducing Casaplata, a restaurant and cocktail bar in the very center of Seville (Spain), the proof is in the pudding (pun, intended) – there to be seen – that this juxtaposition does kind of work.

Designed by Lucas y Hernández-Gil, this restaurant’s design features raw concrete with sharp-edged and cold floors, populated with basic and undecorated utilities and furniture. Somewhat avoiding Seville’s commonplace nostalgia where other restaurants are always looking for a historical revival from the past, Casaplata is about looking for their own singular image.

Boasting strong colour pieces that really stand out and pop against the contrasting silver-grey atmosphere, the entire interior seeks to reinforce the gastronomical experience, blurring the lines of the environment to focus on what is within reach – patron’s food. The perforations within the sheets of all the furniture pieces add a certain lightness to everything, further developing this peeled-back design approach, and equally so, most of the decor takes the form of a circle (lighting, mirrors, and openings) to give an overall allusion of a futuristic appeal.

Simple Hole With A Mirror. Ingenius

SATORI & SCOUT are particularly excited by the hole in the wall that reveals a new room behind upon which a mirror is placed to mimic its opposite number. Ingenious space play.
