Caciara wall illustration

Wall illustration and pattern for Caciara, a brand new italian restaurant in the heart of Milan. The restaurant concept plays with culinary and cultural traditions from all over Italy, and purposes a delicious menu that is both classic and contemporary. For the main wall I was looking for a non clichéd way to represent italian traditions: I worked on the theme of the feast, as an authentic manifestation of community joy, through sacred and profane rituals, symbols and – of course – good food. The illustration is designed to interact with architectural elements such as mirrors and lights and stylistically hits to futurism and vintage italian graphic design.

I also design the textile pattern of a super cool bench: the same pattern is used in the foulards worn by the restaurant staff
