Cristobal Bordiú, Madrid
The Accademia del Gusto
The Accademia del Gusto is a reference point for Italian cuisine in Madrid. This gastronomic gem is located near the Italian Consulate. The client’s aspiration was to have a multipurpose space where cooking and wine tasting courses could be accommodated, events and dinners hosted, as well as a delicatessen sales point.
Negrini, the client, is the main distributor of Italian gastronomic products in Spain, therefore this space had to feel fully Italian. We decided to combine modern finishes with the typical elements of traditional Italian food shops. Furthermore, we wanted to create a space that allowed for the products to stand out. The space is a white, luminous and functional container. The wallpaper we used has different types of pasta on it, evoking the Italian cuisine. The Italian flag, used as a decorative element, sits elegantly as part of the window dress. The upper floor continuous this gastronomic journey through Italy, with Italian wines on display. Finally, the walls have been decorated with a map that explains the Italian wine offer and origin.
The Accademia results in an ode to Italian culture and food.
