Industrial style and reclaimed materials at the OhBo organic café in Barcelona designed by Isabel Lopez Vilalta

Spanish Architecture & Interior Design Studio, Isabel López Vilalta + Asociados, has carried out the interior design project of the new OhBo organic café, located on a wide street in the Sant Gervasi neighbourhood of Barcelona, is a fresh concept in a cozy atmosphere that invites guests to relax while enjoying a healthy meal made with organic, local and seasonal ingredients.

Isabel Lopez Vilalta + Asociados explains, Taking inspiration from industrial designs and reclaimed materials, the design team forged an identity for what is to become a franchise by creating an iron grid structure with antique and reclaimed glass in a variety of green, blue and grey tones. This structure covers the main wall of the restaurant, and its effect is magnified by the use of concrete-effect wallpaper and exposed structures. The two façades are floor to ceiling glass and look onto a garden, highlighting the growth and vegetation and evoking the countryside and the earth’s bounty. For added privacy, these glassed facades are lightly shaded by a sheet metal structure laid out so as to separate the diner from the outside world. Inside, the tables are laid out along the length of an 8-meter chesterfield sofa. There are also leather benches, and, in the middle of the restaurant, a solid oak table dominates the space. The use of natural materials such as wood, iron and leather give the space a sense of both warmth and authenticity.
