Upcycled interior for Italy restaurant Oh! Fico, ma Eco

Welcome to the fantastically designed Oh! Fico, ma eco (meaning “Oh! Cool but green”), a bar-restaurant created by Andrea Minoni Gino Forti in Brescia, Italy. Their number one goal is that everything is local, starting with the decor designed by Debora Pace and Elisa Sozzi.  The bar is made with old shutters repainted beige and a spectacular upcycled chandelier is made from slides collected from an advertising agency in Milan.  In the evening, this projects images of old advertisements on the walls like a magic lantern.
