A small-sized space has been transformed into a space that is collected, but at the same time airy.
On the ground floor the cocktail bar is the space of movement, suitable for a cocktail or a quick lunch. The quality of the space suggested working on the wall, creating a light stone parietal sculpture, which would brighten the environment and become a focal point.
On the upper level, the room offers a cozy environment, almost a domestic living room: a large bench covered with cushions underlines the central wall, a system of shelves at the height of the tables rebalances the proportions of the frescoed room, large mirrors enlarge the room reflecting the light coming from the large openings, on the floor a woven vinyl floor, gives the impression of a large carpet.
There are many suggestions that have corroborated the idea around which the wall has taken shape. The wall parapets and the paving stones of Florence constitute a first reference: smooth stones juxtaposed to rough, polished surfaces next to chisels, rifled, bush-hammered; the geometry, the three-dimensionality of the bosses.
But not only the most authentic and genuine context has been a source of inspiration. These interests have been intercepted with a suggestion that derives from art. Thus the parietal sculptures of Costantino Nivola have also left their mark in the design of the wall.
In the wall, therefore, we find the most recognizable element of space, the trace that best manages to connote it, but without excessive fixity and rigidity, because it is changeable with light and produces, from hour to hour, variable effects thanks to the design of the shadows .
