Settembrini restaurant | Rome

The project combines the places of the modernity with the sobriety of a domestic interior scanned by the reading of characterized elements: a footboard draws the invitation to enter and subdivides two different environments while the counter is grafted to shelf above her itself being transformed into “social” table for aperitifs; moderate divisors create scansions of the space drawing desired by the tables; few ones the used materials and a differentiated illumination decomposes the space in the tones of the chiaroscuro. Two great objects on the opposite walls: a cloth to oil with the slender colors and, for contrast, an inlaid blackboard on the whole surface that remembers the microwriting segnica of the Roman abstractionism.
