The Iconic Design of Pininfarina Architecture in Hong Kong

Pininfarina Architecture designs the interiors of the new restaurant The Italian Club Seafood Wine Bar, in Hong Kong. The ambiance complements chef Stefano Balsamo’s high-end dining experience, bringing Italian taste and style to the heart of the Soho district, one of the city’s most dynamic neighborhoods.

The Biophilic Design Project of Pininfarina Architecture

The design takes inspiration from the variety that characterizes the Mediterranean, where different locations are united by the same roots and where the force of the sea constantly changes the landscape. The color palette keeps this suggestion in mind, using oxidized copper as the main hue juxtaposed with neutral tones of light gray and the petrol green of the wall coverings.

The perforated metal facade at the entrance, thanks to the masked “see-through” effect, gives the room an idea of intimacy. This leads to the dining room, where the large fabric ceiling installation is reminiscent of the movement of waves, as if to make guests feel like they are standing by the sea.

The armchairs and stools with harmonious and ergonomic shapes feature a metal frame with a brushed copper finish, the same choice for the Carrara Marble tables and decorative panels in the room.

In the bathroom, the impression is of being “underwater”: soft lighting and hammered metal on the ceiling emphasize the idea of immersion. The oxidized metal panels feature graphics, applied with a copper film, that are inspired by the movement of underwater currents. The Carrara marble countertop, faucets, and metal accents treated with a brushed copper finish maintain the natural feel of the restaurant design.
