Still exploring the subject of surrealistic interiors... The black and white design of cafeteria by Tobias Rehberger overwhelms with contrasting graphical patterns and vivid colours. Retro and cartoon inspirations seem to be obvious. But there is something more. By oversizing the stripes and dots, interesting effect had been achieved: the space grew and we might experience surreal feeling, like if we had entered a fairytale word of giants.
The cafeteria at the Palazzo delle Exposizioni della Biennale was the winning project at the 53rd International Art Exhibition, La Biennale di Venezia last year. The designer, Tobias Rehberger was awarded the Golden Lion as best artist. The interior had been created in close collaboration with Finnish furniture Artek, the sponsor of La Biennale di Venezia.
