Dining Among the Ruins

Roman ruins are part of the experience at this restaurant in Oderzo, Italy by IM Lab.

The London-based designers incorporated the building’s original stone and brickwork into the design of the dining space, giving diners a real sense of the space’s past. A  glazed floor allows a view of the Roman foundations below, while above a series of lighting fins hang in a twisting form over diners’ heads.

Full height metal screens are laser cut with circles of varying sizes; these perforations offer teasing views further into the small restaurant space. The focal point of the restaurant is a Teppanyaki, an iron griddle traditionally used in Japanese cuisine, that makes a performance of cooking and eating.\
