Federico Delrosso Architects designed the ‘BICE restaurant’ in California, United States.
Description from the architects:
A trip to the restaurant industry abroad for Federico Delrosso, on an all-Italian concept: the latest Bice restaurant in San Diego (California).
The architect Delrosso had already designed the Bice restaurant inaugurated in Istanbul in 2008 and, as in the previous project, in his latest work he continued a consistent line of modernization of the Italian way of food.
Unlike some of its locations (Bice is also in New York, Tokyo, Miami, Chicago, Houston, Montreal, Buenos Aires, Mexico City, Palm Beach, Madrid, Dubai…), Delrosso designed spaces devoid of immediate references to the traditional iconography of Italian cuisine.
Instead the volumes and furnishings were designed to offer an immersion in the most contemporary Italian mood, in emotionally relaxing atmospheres. Besides the actual Dining Room, Delrosso also created the relaxation area, for conversation, reading, and a pleasant, specially lit cocktail-bar. In this way Bice San Diego has an ambiance where the public, the food, the flavours and the feeling of serene conviviality … and not the excess of marks and images, are the true protagonists.
The attractive wengé panelling, the imposing wall and see-through cellar, the “bookcase of vases” and the sliding doors with black-and-white images of the past form the distinctive features and at the same time the silent backdrop on a very special stage, where the cuisine of real Italian style is performed every day.
