An exotic experience filled with wood is embodied in the heart of Barcelona. Barcelona’s Paralelo Avenue is moved simultaneously to Brazil and Japan through Ikibana Restaurant. A gem of an interior design, and designed by El Estudio Creativo architects.

Being faithful to the culinary essence of the establishment, and a  provider of Japanese and Brazilian food in an original fusion of unique flavours, El Estudio Creativo managed to move that east-west mix into the interior design. Although it was not easy, in view of the quiet and minimalist Japanese cultural differences and the lush and bustling Brazil; the design team managed to find a parallel between the two on which they based its interior design project: worship and respect for nature.

Therefore, the team worked in order to get a landscape look for the Ikibana restaurant, with a very natural and friendly space with wood being the leading figure. In fact, the first thing that strikes you when you access the establishment is its majestic ceiling, a network of branches that emulate a rustling forest. Its beauty is enhanced by its translucent power as a warm jingle of lights and shadows in each and every one of the restaurant areas.  The Ikibana bars are also made of wood, as well as the seating areas, based on colourful eastern bowls.

Indeed, the extraordinary distribution of space is one of the tributes paid to the land of the rising sun, and so is the large number of flower arrangements that decorate the different atmospheres. One is the Ikibana, which was taken as a reference to give life and a name to this unique restoration project.

From Brazil, however, there is an air of its voluptuous lifestyle, joy, light and colour in the establishment. The numerous vegetal ornaments, located even on the windows combined masterfully with shaped petal pieces of furniture in colours as vivid as lemon yellow, lime green or passion red.  A tribute to what’s tropical, and brought directly from the heart of Rio de Janeiro.
