A Peek Inside Piada Restaurant in Lyon
Piada is a restaurant in French Lyon, situated in the shopping center that is surrounded by contemporary residential buildings and old fabrics turned into venues for events and nightlife. The restaurant is owned by siblings Arthur and Mathilde, who brought a piece of their native Italy to the French city, through the traditional recipe for “piadinas”, a flatbread made of flour that can be used as a side dish or stuffed with typical Italian ingredients like ham, mozzarella and tomato. The interior was completed by Masquespacio, an award winning Spanish creative consultancy.
“For the design the briefing was clear. A space that transmitted the Italian origins, including its traditional elements and natural ingredients. The space required to remind to the past, but through a modern aesthetic. Due to this since the beginning we opted to use tiles with an artisan aspect, besides a range of elements like the golden bar lamps and arcs with mirrors that resemble the traditional bars from the ancient Italy. Using plants, wood and terracotta on the other hand the natural touch is visible. The neon light “A bit of Italy” from its side can be highlighted as one of the the key elements required by Piada’s founders from the beginning. As for many projects designed by us, a big amount of color is used to brighten the day of Piada’s consumers, while they enjoy a delicious piadina,” said Masquespacio
