The Sculptural Walls In This Restaurant Were Inspired By Painting Brushstrokes

A modern restaurant with walls inspired by marble sculptures and painting brushstrokes.

WAY Studio has shared photos of their recently completed project, a revamp of BIANCHI PLUS, an Italian restaurant in Shanghai, China, that draws inspiration from classic Italian elements of sculpture, food, and nature.

The design of the restaurant interior has been inspired by marble sculptural lines and the texture of painting brushstrokes, which are immediately visible to customers once they step inside.

Curved walls that are showcased throughout the restaurant, have been used instead of hard straight lines, giving the space a more fluid atmosphere.

The large lighting installation above the main dining area was inspired by the sparkling embers of a firewood flame. With the surrounding greenery planted around the room and the granite tabletops, diners feel as if in an outdoor oasis.
