Special Design Pieces for Malamén Restaurant
We are happy to be part of the great story of Malamén restaurant in Polanco, Mexico City, with custom made folded pieces working as lamps for the back bar area.
The project lead by Ricardo Casas and Marco Colín was a mission to realize Malamén’s dream, a girl who found the ultimate joy in cooking and recording every detail in the process. Malamén had lived through the turbulent times of Mexico’s Revolution and after her death, her discarded cookbook was lost to the world for years, only to be found by chance years and years later in an old basement. All the while, the spirit of that girl lived inside the book she had written, patiently waiting to be unleashed and make magic happen...
Malamén's restaurant is situated in the busy Polanco neighborhood in Mexico City and from the moment you enter, it is evident that this is a very special place committed to telling her story.
The space is filled to the brim with the spirit, history, recipes and memorabilia from Malamén's life, while the minimal design bar is made from carrara marble with the back wall featuring a lighting composition of 9 metallic folded wall lamps, specially designed and produced by Panorámica for this amazing restaurant.
The original design works as a tray and you can see the project here.
