The project of the interiors of [bu:r] was born from the intense collaboration with the Michelin Star Chef Eugenio Boer. The deep and constant confrontation made by research and mutual contamination gave birth to a place characterized by a strong link with the Chef’s personality, cuisine and history. The spaces, articulated to be flexible, are designed to offer intimate and welcoming environment, in constant balance between innovation and tradition. The use of techniques and raw materials typical of Italian culture, reinterpreted in an unusual way, refers to Boer’s training path across the peninsula and his attention to tradition, while enhancing the Chef’s innovative and unconventional spirit.
In a similar way, techniques and materials from other contexts refer to ties with Holland, where Boer spent his childhood, as well as contaminations with traditions and cultures with which he came into contact.The bold colors of the walls and floors energetically distinguish the rooms of the restaurant, suggesting a sophisticated analogy with the strong and decisive flavors of the kitchen; similarly, precious materials such as marble, walnut and brass reflect the importance and sophistication of the raw materials that distinguish Boer’s thinking.
Unexpected decorative features characterize the spaces in a unique way: among these, the monolith covered with three-dimensional ceramic elements, the wallpaper with Chinese-inspired prints in the blue color typical of Delft ceramics, the walls with the rustic plaster colored with golden finish; they are the synthesis of a modern and visionary, courageous and dynamic thought that unites the approach to the kitchen and the design of the spaces.
