POEMA

DO SEMBA

RESTAURANT

Semba's poem:

"Oh, under-fed from the dream, poetry is to eat."

Natalia Correia

 

Based on this excerpt, we designed a live music restaurant for singer and composer Paulo Flores, whose space "speaks" of poetry and the "soul" of the author's music.

The concept from which we started was the poetic capillarity of his music.

Thinking that music and poetry are universal arts, we developed the project in such a way that the poetic text and the lyrics of the songs were present in the general perception of the space and in each moment of the use of the restaurant.

The walls, 85cm of height, spread out into space as they embrace the tables of the meal. On top of them, a line of light that carries the poetic phrases of the letters, receives the guest accompanying it always.

It is intended that, when descending the stairs, the user captures this concept through a strong and dominant image of this capillarity that organizes the bar and restaurant area.

The poetry of Semba is starters, main dish, dessert, wine, all night long.
