Estraperlo; (Commercial activity of rationed goods, after the Spanish civil war).
Estraperlo, Clandestine delicacies in one place with the authentic escence of the North.
The branches of an orange tree produces strange shadows that reflect in the facade, this reminds us of the forest where back in the days the smugglers brought Estraperlo goods. Modernist doors with colourful glass welcome us, the floor plays with the contrast of textures and materials, merging traditional tiles and an antique parquet floor, a good election for this peculiar place.
The lower floor is a bit more informal, with high tables and stools where to enjoy a cold beer accompanied by a variety of pintxos (Basque region tapas) to the purest Estraperlo style… as a central piece an imposing tailor made wooden bar with zinc sheets, it simulates an old storage pantry for clandestine products.
The first floor serves as the dining area, here the Basque gastronomy becomes an authentic experience with details that transports us to the north of the country, deconstructed walls to leave the brick shown in a process that rescues the charm of forgotten surfaces… tables, chairs and tableware make up an heterogeneous harmony that captivates and invites us to seat and relax. Here a warm sensation is generated by the skylight and the reflections that aged mirrors produce.
In this interior design project the intention was to preserve the traditional image of the Basque country, Francisco Segarra has been able to encapsulate and embody the concept with his own seal of identity. The selection of furniture for this project also the effort and the capacity to interpret the demands of the sector with results that have its own personality and identity.
The second floor is full of sensations, stories, people enjoying how they know best… around a table. The wall as a trip through time, generated by the juxtaposition of antique clocks which belongs to the family collection, it reminds us that the time stopped her, in this homelike and clandestine place.
