Colours, patterns and artwork are all imbued with maritime references at this Lisbon seafood grill and oyster bar.
Studio Pim designed Rosamar, which is located not far from the city’s botanical garden. They based its interiors on a single, archetypal image of a sailing boat on a sandy beach – and the seaside references aren’t hard to spot.
From its marine blue doors and windows to its timber ceilings and striped benches, the Lisbon restaurant embraces all things nautical. Small touches, such as porthole-shaped windows in doors and pieces of vintage advertising all evoke the sea, while more subtle additions – including seats upholstered in wavy, sandy patterns – lend the space a beachy feel.
Illustrator and ceramicist Henriette Arcelin contributed a hand-painted tile mural, featuring various inhabitants of the sea, and an array of found objects including rattan baskets, oars and painted wooden fish complete the atmosphere.
Studio Pim has also installed plenty of plant life, including in Rosamar’s Crittall-framed dining room – where diners sit next to creeping vines and huge banana leaves.
