The claim from Mischbar "We bring you fresh local food" took Aretio & Kloos to their concept: an INDOOR MARKET, full of sunshades, hanging bulbs, trolleys and high tables, where fresh local ingredients are transformed into salads, smoothies or curries.
The counter of this “market" is built in 3 different materials and textures: Corian for ice-creams, wood for soups & curries and concrete for salads.
The back of the bench was used to house a representation of the city of Nuremberg, a piece created by artist Martin Tibabuzo with rubber stamps made out of his own illustrations. Tibabuzo also illustrated the menu board, the columns and the tray-trolley.
Probably the biggest challenge was to create the soups & curries menu. Mischbar has a menu of 90 different soups and curries, but only 6 are daily served. The menu had to be easily interchangeable and visible. The solution was given by creating 30 wooden triangular pieces, engraving 3 dishes on each piece.
The coat hanger was designed making a wink to ice-cream lovers, using metal scoops to create the hooks.
Steinberg, translated "stone mountain", is a little nice Hotel located in Röthenbach an der Pegnitz (Germany). The given name was the key to reach the right interior design concept, making the mountain silouettes and crooked lines its main focus.
The corporate design also had to include a simple but recognizable icon, a mountain silouette that was applied to the whole corporate design, includin stationary, signage and other decoration elements.
The use of wood and natural elements was also a "must" in their concept, therefore some elemets like the drinks menu or the sign system.Branding, Interior Design2013
Glore Store, the first sustainable clothes store in Germany, is commited to help small sustainable brands from all over the globe. From this point, we wanted to make a link with the most sustainable way of transport: bicycles.
Following this eco-philosophy, we also decided to reuse some material, therefore we collected old bicycles in local shops, fruit boxes for other pieces of furniture, and recycled cardboard for the lighting.
The biggest challenge was to build up the lighting. In total 120 cardoard boxes were set in different levels in order to create this playful lighting.Interior Design2013
Anna Cerezo, Marcos Aretios wife, had a brilliant idea: to start a little Tapas Bar with simple but quality food.
As Aretio&Kloos had an empty space in their office, they decided to work on the concept and the design of “La Tapería”, a temporary Tapas Bar which will be open every weekend from 18th of october until 1st of december 2012.
The main challenge was to build a flexible space. Counting with only 18 square meters, they had to find a solution for housing around 25 people eating and drinking, or just drinking. The solution finally was reached by building a long but narrow table that holds the food trays through a gap between two layers, allowing people to put up to 14 trays in case of need.
The shelves on the walls are hanging from an aluminum profile that already existed, integrating the furniture in the space. The Tapas trays are painted in irregular shapes and colors, and finally engraved with the logo.
To put a cherry on top, they asked artist Martín Tibabuzo to illustrate their Tapas menu blackboard with typographical elements and beautiful details.
