Comfortable Acoustics at the Osteria dei Sani restaurant, Italy

Osteria dei Sani is one of the most famous restaurants of Abruzzo, Italy, where you can eat local specialities prepared with products of high quality and enjoy some wines and craft beers having won the international awards.
The owner Anna and Luca Mettimano, some years ago, renewed the place, moving in a new place, where, thanks to Nomad Architects, they created a simple and elegant style, but at the same time not too snob for families and groups.

We then estimated in association with the architect Massimo D’Arcangelo (Nomad Architetti), a system of acoustic panels “chicanes”, covered with fabric with a color very similar to that some of the ceiling; they are anchored in the perpendicular files of adhesion to the ceiling of the main room. In this way, a perfect symmetry of the alignments of the perimeter of the ceiling with its suspended lamps is not interrupted, assuring the preservation of the harmony wished by the architects.

Besides the esthetic result, thanks to the acoustic panels, the reverberation is considerably limited by the creation of a peaceful atmosphere where it’s pleasant to converse during a business lunch or a romantic dinner.

Italian design chairs and shoe stores: Bartu Schuhhandels, Germany

Italian design chairs¬†are an essential design element not only in the office, but also in a shoe store. We can say that shoes, are for walking, so shoe stores don’t need chairs. Yet, in order to try a new pair of shoes during a purchase at a specialty store, you have to sit comfortably. Moreover, the more a store offers fashionable shoes, the more aesthetic and design of its premises are important.

This was well understood by the Bartu Schuhhandels Group (Josef Tretter GmbH & Co.KG), based in Munich, with nine shoes and handbag stores,¬†trendy, spacious and elegant, who chose The Mercanti’s Italian chairs. Bartu Schuhhandels loved the design chairs Catifa 46 Arper, design by Lievore Altherr Molina, flexible to be used in indoor or outdoor spaces. Their frame and base are made from a wide range of materials, colors and finishes. Simple and sophisticated silhouette, depending on the variants that adapt to any environment and situation: in the kitchen or living space, in an office or a restaurant, or in a waiting room in a hotel. Fresh and sinuous in design, lightweight and versatile in use: Arper conceives design as a pure search for essentiality.
