Lighting changes atmosphere in Madrid restaurant

Magda Ibrahim
Wednesday 20 Feb 2019

Mecanismo renovated the interior of La Cabra restaurant in Madrid, Spain.

Renowned chef Javier Aranda wanted a total change in atmosphere at his restaurant La Cabra, in Madrid, while keeping elements that defined his gastronomical concept. 

With a strict three-week build phase, Mecanismo designed and produced most of the elements off-site before the restaurant closure.

Mecanismo used a wooden walnut brick pattern to generate a curved furniture surface, which was combined with other natural materials like marble for eating surfaces, steel for auxiliary elements, and fabric upholstered all the sofas and chair seats. 

Lighting was one of the most important aspects in the project to create a new, warm atmosphere. 

Mecanismo designed two kinds of suspended lamps using the same concept and materials as in the rest of the elements.

The three-week build phase then involved creating the new space distribution, covering the structure walls using bricks and painting the ceilings. 

At the same time, Mecanismo installed the prefabricated elements to create a warm and cosy renovation.
