Olivomare Restaurant by Pierluigi Piu

Olivomare is a restaurant serving seafood in London, reason why Pierluigi Pui used such peculiar decorative language using more or less clear references to the sea world and environment.

The wide wall that characterizes the main dining room is entirely covered by a large cladding featuring a pattern inspired by the works of Maurits Escher. To counterpoint it, in the same room, there is a sequence of tubular luminescent tentacles evoking a stray shoal of jellyfishes or sea anemones.

In the small dining room, the cladding is characterized by a wavy relief meant to evoke the sandy surface of the beach when moulded by the wind, while in the toilets lobby the intricate branches of a coral reef closes in around any visitor.
