La Nonna Cucina Bar by Esrawe Studio

November 8, 2013

Esrawe Studio have designed the La Nonna Cucina Bar in Mexico City, Mexico.



La Nonna Cucina Bar is inspired by traditional Italian cuisine, its textures, scents and cookware.

The textures are expressed through the use of brick, wood, firewood and vegetation. Together with the proper use of light, they create a sober and nostalgic atmosphere.

Approaching to La Nonna, one notices the dialogue of continuity with the park and the public space, specifically of the Lincoln Park, in the Polanco neighborhood, in Mexico City.

The main hall inside La Nonna lies under a vault from which a 1,500 brassed metal spoon lamp is suspended. This lamp was manufactured specifically for this project.

The chairs are built with oak, and its legs refer to traditional Italian rolling pins.

Its neutral character is emphasized with contrasting gestures from the glass accessories and its decorative elements.
