Going out is the new staying in all around the world – our interest in food and healthy eating is a well established phenomenon: street food, Michelin star restaurants, coffee shops, whatever the occasion there’s an increasingly varied choice of venue. Of course in reality going out to eat is only really partly to do with the food itself. The thing that makes going out so unique, so special, is the experience itself. Sharing time with friends, or family, a prospective lover, a group of work colleagues – whatever the situation, it’s more memorable over food.
When we do go out we expect the experience to be out of the ordinary, otherwise we would just stay in and cook for ourselves. Service and design are two key ingredients when creating an appropriate ambience – lighting of course is crucial to mood. Vibia invites you to come with us on a whirlwind tour through some of the world’s most divine restaurant interiors.
Our first stop is for breakfast (or a late brunch) at the Schiller Brasserie in Zurich presided over by Slim, its elegant silhouette is the perfect condiment.
The Masseria Guida, Ercolano opens their doors at the foot of Vesuvius where the country air and a lunch of Italian cold meats and wines awaken the appetite, accompanied by the delicate beauty of Wireflow 3D.
We take a quick detour to Vienna’s Risotto Box where the noontime menu is accompanied by Flamingo floating serenely overhead;
for lovers of Northern fare the Torsgatan 21 restaurant in Stockholm, where the food is complimented by the sculptural atmosphere of Match.
Just in time for olives, cheese and pan con tomate at Barcelona’s Vermuterie under the Wireflow Chandeliers, creating a light frame for memorable encounters.
Finally, at sunset, it’s got to be San Francisco’s Presidio with its warm clapperboard cladding and jewel-like Wireflow Free-form dropping from above, lighting intimate conversations and good times had by all.
