Blanc i Negre Restaurant in Valencia, Spain by Ramón Esteve Estudio

Blanc i Negre was based on the aim of recovering the essence of a traditional bar. Its cooking style reflects its environment: an interpretation of the local cuisine that stands up for the taste and quality of the local products.
Purist & Contemporaneous
The great challenge of this project was the transformation of the existing premises – a classic restaurant with a lot of tradition- in modern and accessible establishment with a strong character that keeps part of its previous traditional personality.
The diamond-shaped geometry of the ceramic tiling, from the Faces collection by L’Antic Colonial –also designed by Ramon Esteve-, matches with the remains of the previous premises, giving the restaurant a noticeable identity.
The ceramic flooring, of a discreet beige hue, provides a cosy atmosphere that contrast with other elements such as the golden details of the lighting, the sinuous counter of Nero Marquina veined marble and the diamond-shaped geometry repeated both in Faz furniture by Vondom and in the tiling.
Blanc i Negre is divided in two different rooms with different features: the restaurant area and the bar area, with bar tables and a more casual character. Their result is a space where the interior design achieves a perfect balance between modernity and warmth and contributes to create a unique hedonistic experience.
All the corporative image -the logotype, the business cards, the menu cards, the tablecloth and even the label of the house wine- has been designed by the staff of Ramon EsteveEstudio, every detail reflecting the restaurant’s philosophy.
