Torno Subito

Lead DesignersPaul Bishop
Prize(s)Silver in Interior Design / Conceptual
Entry Description

Torno Subito was to be a metaphysical manifestation of beachside days reminiscent of Rimini’s coastal playground of the 1950s-60s. The interiors in itself were current, bold, avant-garde and playful yet reminiscent of days passed culminating in a visual journey through its interior styling and narrative. The language achieved was enhanced through the use of diversifying materials and installations evoking recollection of memory. Pastel tones are complimented with a bold mélange of color, contrasting against a morphing monochromatic floor dynamic which blends into a three dimensional agitated sand print flooring. Furniture was evocative of design classics from Paola Lenti to Gio Ponti. The venue encourages its clientele to interact with its interior and exterior dynamic as the day transcends into night, relaxing as the sun sets. Ultimately ‘La dolce vita’ of bygone days realized through this unique venue in its interior and food offering that culminates Massimo’s vision into reality.
