The restaurant ‘LUPPOLO & FARINA’ (Hops and Flour) was inaugurated in 2018 in the heart of a small town of the Salento region, a project that expresses a new entrepreneurial model that engages young people, enthusiastic about wanting to introduce the Neapolitan culinary tradition to Latiano and its surroundings. A cosy, sober, and minimalistic environment but with a style that is refined and studied in detail without sacrificing comfort, divided into zones, each with its own characteristics, due to the ‘L’ shape of the spaces. Wood – a common element around which rotates the design of the walls, chairs, tables, and ‘coffering’ for the housing of the stabilized greenery – combines with design lighting fixtures made of ceramic, and artistic works made of ceramic and wood: a connection between the old and the new. All rooms have a soundproofing false ceiling in wood fibre to guarantee a snug hospitality, far from the outside noise. All the environments have been furnished with the same attention to enhance the beauty of simplicity by introducing few and simple functional furnishings. This is why S•CAB chose the Smilla chair in technopolymer, the Nemo and Natural Metropolis tables, and the Lisa Wood stools. In the architecture, the expression of Luppolo&Farina’s philosophy: the magic of taste originates from simplicity.
