14/10/2020 - Nestled in the wonderful garden of Goulandris Natural History Museum in Athens, Natu Restaurant
is the new restaurant designed by Stones and Walls studio
that blends creative Mediterranean cuisine with a contemporary and modern setting, while respecting the tradition and the philosophy of the museum. Pedrali
furniture fits into this unique natural setting.
The restaurant welcomes its guests in a space which, thanks to the presence of exclusive artworks, seems to be a continuum of the museum experience. Nature, from which stems the name Natu, is the main character, featuring the environment with a wide variety of plants: laurel, myrtle, pomegranate, lavender, and many other aromatic herbs typical of Greece. Natural elements like wood, linen, stone and ceramic, are employed for both the indoor rooms and the outdoor garden, while the chromatic palette recalls earth tones. The clean-cut forms enter into the picturesque scenery of the flora through fluid transitions, evoking feelings of serenity and harmony.
Placed in the outdoor garden, chairs, armchairs, barstools and tables of Nolita
collection designed by CMP Design
, have enhanced their markedly outdoor spirit. Completely made of steel, they are proposed in the sage green version. Nolita is a family of outdoor seatings which recalls the origins of a historic course, started by Mario Pedrali in 1963 with his first metal garden chairs. The collection seems to arise from the memories of a sunny and lively square, a timeless place, giving birth to simple and iconic shapes.
Nolita chairs and armchairs are matched with Ikon
tables, designed by Pio and Tito Toso, here proposed in beige. Ikon is a table that speaks the language of architecture in its highest expression of simplicity and elegance.
tables, characterized by a base that, even optically, suggests a sense of stability, complete the indoor rooms of the restaurant.
