The Dash Kitchen is a restaurant in Turin (Italy) designed by the incredible Italian architect Fabio Fantolino. The decoration of this restaurant transports us to different times with a perfect combination between the industrial aesthetics and a reinterpretation of the 70s. Take a look at the images below and get inspired.
Its industrial inspiration comes from the fact that this restaurant was once a printing house that was abandoned a long time ago. The space itself was taken with the purpose of being used and integrated into the decoration created by Fabio Fantolino for the Dash Kitchen. The polished cement creates a very peculiar ambience that contrasts with the shiny chrome and splashes of different colours and textures.
The entire space is lit by Phanto’s 70’s inspired, tubular lighting fixtures, as well as custom-designed wood configurations with spotlights, designed by the architect and made by Falegnameria Fiore.
The décor and color scheme get deeper and moodier as patrons traverse further inside, through the wide, polished cement and rosso levanto marble passageways and into the second lounge. In here, intimacy plays a central role, where patrons are invited to get comfortable for dinner and/or drinks on the tufted black leather sofas and velvet armchairs in shades of green and taupe. Similarly, they can step through the industrial archways into the intimate dining space boasting deep, brick red armchairs surrounding round tables, and illuminated by Fabbian’s colored glass, Beluga pendant lamps; a long, rectangular dining table also stands at the end of the room before the black brick wall which features the Dash Kitchen logo crafted out of polished steel, reflecting the warm light cast from the Phanto designed Bidone lamps.
