Botanical décor while cooking up a storm


More than 200 unpainted plaster moulds of fresh foods (seafood, fish and several fruits and vegetables) decorate "Pur", the new restaurant opened by Nandu Jubany, situated in a small passageway off Barcelona’s Rambla Cataluña, in close proximity to the Petit Comitè owned by the same chef.

The composition, the work of Lagranja studio, recalls the early botanical collections showcased in natural history museums. The realistic figures and shapes on view, such as the coiled octopus tentacles, the plump lettuces, the bulbous broccoli heads, among others, have also been reproduced on the wallpaper purpose-made for the establishment, a comprehensive project undertaken by the mentioned design and interior decoration studio. Particularly noteworthy are the screens in oak wood slats, intricately interconnected to allow for privacy and lightness, and the large moon-shaped fixtures in alabaster stone, which bring depth to the space with their low-intensity light.

The key is perhaps in the Lagranja design philosophy: “It is crucial to avoid overcooking a project. If you have a good idea, like a good cooking ingredient, you have to know when to stop and retain the concept’s integrity”.

This is not the first time that Lagranja has collaborated with Nandu Jubany; their previous joint adventures include projects in Singapore (Foc, Foc Sentosa and Pim Pam Foc) and Petit Comitè restaurant in Barcelona.
