Fish and Grapes is the project of David Coluzzi for a room in which two functions are hosted, that of a fish market, then the retail sale of fresh fish products and that of catering. The intent was to give the sensation, in the administration of food and drink, of eating fresh fish as if it had just been caught, inside a fishing boat.
This dual function and "vision" pushed the project to create two different environments that communicated to each other, despite the difference in atmosphere, thanks to the use of materials. Hot wood and polished and cold pottery intersect with each other by differentiating the sales area (colder and aseptic) with the area of administration (more warm and welcoming).
Three-dimensional elements reflect light and shine like fish scales. The element that binds the rooms is on the ceiling. A large blue wave from the fresh fish exhibition area "flooding" the rest of the space ends with a curved curve and strings ending in bright amps. A poetic vision of fishermen withdrawing nets from the sea, here sculpted, summarized and functional at the same time.
Lighting is widespread and adjustable with dimmer so as to propose the appropriate atmospheres as if we were outdoors. The project aims to give the customer / spectator a unique experience where art and architecture blend into an "ancestral" concept of union between food and nature.
