Neutral textures by Cosentino fill the spaces in the restaurant designed by RCB.
Located in the Museum of Image and Sound (MIS) of São Paulo, Pipo Restaurant offers a gastronomic experience
during which the clients can follow and enjoy the reparation and plate presentation process of the menu designed by famed chef Felipe Bronze, distinguished
with two Michelin stars. The architects Renata Castilho and Camila Buciani, of the São Paulo-based studio RCB
Arquitetura, were commissioned to design this open-plan space, connected with nature, sunlight, and the fresh breeze. Both the countertops of the grill area and the main wall are clad with Dekton Orix, a tone included in the ‘industrial’ collection and that gives a neutral image, in contrast with the colorist decoration signed by the artist TOZ. Along the same line, the walls and countertops are covered with Dekton Nilium, which reproduces a natural texture scattered with golden and gray metallic dots. This
material is highly resistant to UV light, so it can also be used on the terrace, creating a uniform aesthetic and blurring the boundaries between indoor and outdoor spaces. Following this same aim, the main space is enclosed with permeable doors of timber strips designed
specifically for this project.
The design for Pipo Restaurant includes 138 m² of Cosentino materials: Dekton Nilium on tables and countertops, Dekton Oriz on worktops and main wall, and
Silestone Blanco Capri for bathrooms.
