Dark green walls dominate Berlin’s To The Bone restaurant which blends industrial details with surprising flashes of colour.
Hong Kong-based designer Piero Zanatta oversaw the interiors, in partnership with chef founder Giacomo Mannucci – who has already opened a steak restaurant and food stand in the German capital.
To The Bone, which is entered via a neon-lit doorway on Mitte’s Torstrasse, serves Italian cuisine in a setting that mixes contemporary design pieces with art from Mannucci’s own collection. The Berlin restaurant’s green walls are its most striking feature, and are contrasted by polished concrete floors, and dark wooden tables and chairs.
A plush gold velvet banquette forms a centrepiece for the dining area, and metal grills and spotlights inject an industrial edge. Elsewhere, blue and red dining chairs add extra colour contrast.
As well as the restaurant and bar – which will serve classic Italian cocktails – there is a private dining room which can be booked, and in the summer guests will be able to sip their negronis on an outdoor terrace.
To The Bone joins a set of Berlin restaurants that are challenging the city’s rough-and-ready reputation. Many of the capital’s built treasures are being converted by canny restaurateurs, keen to make the most of their architectural history and original details.
