El Equipo Creativo designs whimsical dessert restaurant
A fairy tale-like space was created for the new pastry restaurant, La Dolça, in Barcelona
After a dinner full of surprises in Tickets restaurant, guests are invited to “put the icing on the cake” by having dessert in La Dolça. The new space, designed by El Equipo Creativo, aims to embrace visitors and transport them to the magical universe of children’s stories where sweets have a special importance, such as “Alice in Wonderland” and “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.” Just as in those fantasy worlds, everyday objects change scale, context and position, creating a surprising and fantastic space, and perhaps making us feel like children once again.
From above, the ceiling greets the guest with an explosion of color. Strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, cherries and giant flowers envelop the space, offering a unique and magical atmosphere.
At a more accessible level, the furniture, specifically designed for La Dolça, also forms part of the stenography. The white paper doilies used for pastries are the leitmotiv for the design of the tables, which at the same time serve as filters through which the spotlights draw a world of lights and shadows on the floor.
While gathering the bustling spirit of Tickets restaurant, La Dolça offers a sweet, fantastic counterpoint -- from the roguish world of the Paral.lel Avenue to which Tickets pays homage to an imaginary world seen through the eyes of a child.
