There’s a decidedly nautical feel at Barcelona’s Compartir, which uses rich blues and rattan ‘sails’ to create a seaside feel indoors.
El Equipo Creativo designed the space, which is located in the city’s Eixample district and is the second Compartir to open in Spain – with the first established in the coastal town of Cadaqués. The studio installed three ‘blue windows’ in the restaurant, collaborating with a different local artist to create a textile, sculptural and pictorial interpretation for each. The sea-coloured palette is picked up elsewhere at Compartir in the form of a bright blue door.
The maritime ambience doesn’t end there, however, with El Equipo Creativo installing curved mirrors and rattan dividers designed to bring to mind sail-covered seascapes – reminiscent of those found in Compartir’s first home near the bay of Cadaqués. Glossy terracotta tiles, slate stone and arrangements of dried flowers contrast the space.
