OhBo ORGANIC Café
Anyone observing the culinary scene in Barcelona right now could not fail to notice the wave of new organic or Km0 restaurants and supermarkets that are popping up across the city. While just a few years ago we simply took it for granted now we have to actively seek out healthy food. The interior designers and architects commissioned to create these spaces should ideally reflect the organic nature of the food with an equally environmentally sustainable attitude to design. This has been achieved at OhBo ORGANIC Café by the interior design studio Isabel López Vilalta through its cutting edge, industrial but equally warm approach. The 210 sq.m. space is located in the uptown neighbourhood of Barcelona where the idea was to reflect the organic concept as something quite normal in terms of the restaurant’s offering.
The restaurant space is an open plan layout with individual and shared tables, one single central structural column forms an island table arrangement with surround seating. A bright and generous dining with lots of natural light defined by solid materials such as wood, metal and glass. The cubic internal volume is calibrated by a metal grid that forms a privacy screen to the exterior street courtyard which is repeated to form shelving within the wall separating the kitchen area. A carefully controlled palette of colours creates a warm yet neutral environment where the food and the graphic design are carefully considered. The raw approach to the food is reflected in the raw approach to the materials and the mechanical and electrical installation, the air conditioning system is fully on display. The furniture follows the overall philosophy being simple yet elegant.

The restaurant is located on Dr. Fleming with a very generous terrace directly in front
