London's Olivo's Gets Redesign

Once designed by Pierluigi Piu, Sardinian restaurant Olivo, located on London's Eccleston Street, has been refurbished after 25 years of success by the original architect himself. Still inspired by the proprietor's home island Sardinia, Piu's redesign of Olivo evokes the ancient weaving technique, pibiones, which translates to grained texture through the wide natural stone bas reliefs.

One of the main features of the redesign includes a wide wall tapestry made out of natural stone and inspired by the typical Sardinian fabrics where decorative patterns, like the lapwing bird, are enhanced by a sort of grain in relief generated by sequences of small loops. On the right side of the restaurant, is the bar, which consists of a multifunctional counter made of brown Corian. Behind it, between the dining rooms, is a staircase that leads to the kitchen.
