Mediterranean inspiration: Pininfarina designs a new restaurant in Hong Kong


In the dynamic Soho district in Hong Kong Pininfarina Architecture, in collaboration with studio Stefano Tordiglione Design, signed the interior design of the new restaurant The Italian Club Seafood Wine Bar, taking inspiration from the variety that characterizes the Mediterranean area.

The color palette includes oxidized copper as the main hue, juxtaposed with neutral tones of light grey, and petrol green for the wall coverings, while the perforated metal façade at the entrance, with its masked “see-through” effect, gives the room an impression of intimacy.

Leading to the dining room, the large fabric ceiling installation recalls the movement of waves, to make guests feel almost as if they were on the seashore. The armchairs and stools, with their harmonious and ergonomic shapes, have a metal frame with a brushed copper finish, as well as the Carrara marble tables and the decorative panels in the hall.

In the spectacular bathroom, the impression is of being “underwater”: the soft lighting and the hammered metal on the ceiling emphasize the idea of immersion. The oxidized metal panels feature graphics, applied with a copper film, inspired by the movement of underwater currents. The Carrara marble countertop, the faucets and the metal accents – treated with a brushed copper finish – maintain the natural feeling of the restaurant’s design.

The Italian Club Seafood Wine Bar thus stands as a model of biophilic design, designed to combine fine dining with the experience of the Mediterranean nature.
