Under the wire mesh. The project concept of Fabrika 136 Coffe & Food was born from the assumption of the creation of a metallic frame that can be traced back to the company brand which is located in the middle of an industrial area of the Republic of San Marino. Given the regulatory constraints relating to the interior heights, a new ceiling made of a black natural steel frame supporting a metal mesh extends over the entire internal surface of the room, vertically passing each custom furniture. The Bar counter is an intransigent planimetric sign parallel to the main entrance functionally scans the space in three main areas related to an intimate area with low and high tables on one side and a the long convivial table area whose development is transversal to the bar counter. The space is permeated by a diffused cementitious materiality, in its brutal and industrial aspects in the floorings and perimeter walls. Full and empty spaces alternate with compositions of custom furniture made of raw wood and black natural steel in the primary material state, leading to a fragmented space reading in its different functions. The metal wire mesh results in the entire project as an opportunity for the management of direct and indirect artificial light but also of natural light in cases where their location is adjacent to the main windows. The shadow and the light are in constant movement causing a scenographic aspect that changes inside the bar. The structures hanging from the ceiling are carrying the hanging lights as the bottles of the bar area responding to the functional need to increase the storage space of open furniture. The network also becomes an opportunity to manage the different seasonal moods of Fabrika 136. Everything is marked by a red line
