We don’t know if we are wise or foolish, because when we go out for a lunch we tend to choose the restaurant for its unique architectonic design (and then we hope that the food will also be good). So, next time we’ll travel to Italy, we already know where we’ll stop for a meal: at Barca’s restaurant in Turin.
Custom-designed lighting consisting of diagonally cut cylindrical chrome profiles and custom-made tables of different colour laminates and Marcel Breuer side chairs in Alcantara all recall the design of the 1970’s: these furnishing elements contribute to the creation of a warm and relaxed atmosphere. There’s a special focus on sofas and chairs; sea blue velvet, green dry cotton twill and hazel Alcantara alternate, covering all the seats throughout the three floors. The underground level houses a more intimate and reserved area, where the dark shades of the walls is softened by the red melange tones of the seats. The space is punctuated by blue velvet screens and wooden panels.
Barca’s offers the opportunity to experience the atmosphere of 1970’s West Coast, while dining right in the heart of Turin.
