Perpiacere gourmet store

A space conceived with the intent to become a community destination in Madrid for Italian food and cuisine discovery, Pierciacere Gourmet Store interior design project was centred essentially around three main keywords: convivial mood, clean aesthetics and artisanal nature. So the retail setting turned into a rationally organized space around a central “kitchen island” table where one’s attention was focused on many specialty and gourmet craft products, within a homogeneously illuminated wooden framework that brings warmth and genuineness.
Each piece of furniture was designed to create a recognizable and unique character to the brand, to make the space seem larger and to guide fluidly the clients between gourmet indulgences and everyday grocery, while offering them a relaxed and intimate environment where connect to a larger world of a food culture.
