Designed by Eric Carlson, one of Perspective’s A&D Trophy Award judges, 2015, Piselli in Sao Paulo is the latest project from the Paris-based Carbondale.
Situated in the Iguatemi Faria Lima building in Sao Paulo, the restaurant is described as a restaurant in a garden, and it is embraced by a green ring of foliage to enhance the outdoor atmosphere.
Piselli is a restaurant without walls. To tackle this problem, Eric Carlson created suspended floor-to-ceiling strands composed of gold plated solid brass bars that vertically wrap the periphery of the six-metre high restaurant.
The interior of the restaurant features raised Cumaru wood parquet flooring and a floating monumental box ceiling finished in a high polished lacquer smoked cedar wood paneling, to establish a warm ambience.
