RAFFLES HOTEL EUROPEJSKI RESTAURANT
Projekt Warszawa sp z o. o.
Abstracting History. Our concept for the Hotel Europejski Restaurant aims to interpret classical decorative elements of prewar Warsaw in a new, abstract, yet playful form. We posed a challenge for ourselves to interpret historical decorative elements such as ornamental ceiling molding in a contemporary manner, one that articulates current digital/physical production techniques, yet pays homage to the past.
Our response was to use Oscar Zieta’s inflatable steel as compositional elements for the production of historically influenced, exuberant, yet completely contemporary ‘decorative molding’.
Using Zieta’s ‘Prozess Design’ system we’d like to develop a completely unique ceiling pattern that will be definitive identifier of this Hotel Europejski Restaurant. These are the first sketches of the potentially powerful impression this concept could provide for the interior of the restaurant.
