El interior es blanco Corian ™ combinado con madera, mate lacado. El suelo de madera y la alfombra debajo de la mesa dan un toque de calidez, mientras que la terraza exterior ofrece una vista impresionante del exterior. La base del edificio, ligeramente elevado por encima del suelo sobre el que descansa, acentúa la idea de limpieza y ligereza formal que caracteriza todo el volumen. Incluso en el interior  se utilizan soluciones tecnológicas al más alto nivel de alumbrado, calefacción, sistema de sonido y, por supuesto, el equipamiento de la cocina.

Park Associati: The Cube il ristorante itinerante a Milano

The CUBE, dining with a view, è il padiglione progettato da Park Associati per ospitare il ristorante itinerante voluto da Electrolux. Progettato per essere posto in scenografiche e inaspettate location europee, è stato inaugurato a Bruxelles l’1 aprile 2011, e ospitato per tre mesi sull’arco del Parc du Cinquantenaire, nei pressi della sede della Comunità Europea. Il ristorante sarà attivo contemporaneamente attraverso due strutture gemelle, semitrasparenti in grado di offrire un servizio di pranzo e cena per 18 ospiti alla volta. Posizionati in contesti straordinari, alla sommità di edifici importanti o addirittura sull’acqua, i due padiglioni toccheranno varie tappe europee in Belgio, Italia, Russia, Svizzera e Svezia rimanendo per un massimo di tre mesi in ogni location.

L’interno di The CUBE è studiato per adattarsi a configurazioni diverse. Il padiglione è composto da un vasto open space con cucina a vista e un unico grande tavolo in grado di scomparire alzandosi verso il soffitto a formare un’area lounge per il dopocena. La superficie totale di 140 mq circa, è suddivisa tra l’open space e la terrazza di 50 mq. Nella cucina, fornita di elettrodomestici altamente tecnologici nello stile che caratterizza Electrolux, si alterneranno chef di fama internazionale che offriranno agli ospiti un servizio di show cooking con menù appositamente creati.

Completamente trasparente, assemblato a secco con un’intelaiatura mista in legno e ferro, composto di lastre di vetro racchiuse da una struttura in alluminio tagliata al laser, ha una superficie di 150 metri quadrati e pesa 60 tonnellate. THE CUBE è concepito come un un modulo che può essere montato e smontato in modo relativamente agevole, e adattarsi ad ogni situazione climatica, anche la più estrema, esprimendo sempre il massimo comfort abitativo nel più alto valore estetico e materico. La costruzione mantiene le caratteristiche di leggerezza e versatilità di uno stand espositivo pur avendo la complessità progettuale di un edificio. I materiali impiegati, altamente innovativi dal punto di vista tecnologico, di ecosostenibilità e di risparmio energetico, permettono un loro riutilizzo costante. La leggerezza formale è sottolineata all’esterno dal colore bianco e movimentata nei volumi grazie anche all’utilizzo della “pelle” in alluminio tagliato al laser a formare una texture alveolare a densità variabile che ricopre l’intera superficie esterna. L’interno è in Corian™ bianco abbinato a legno, sia opaco che laccato. Il pavimento in legno e il tappeto sotto al tavolo aggiungono un tocco di calore e atmosfera, mentre la terrazza esterna offre una straordinaria visuale sull’esterno. La base dell’edificio, in posizione leggermente sopraelevata rispetto alla pavimentazione su cui poggia, accentua l’idea di levità e pulizia formale che caratterizza tutta la struttura. Anche all’interno vengono utilizzate soluzioni tecnologiche di altissimo livello, per  l’illuminazione, il sistema termico, la diffusione sonora e naturalmente tutta l’attrezzatura della cucina.

Set up in 2000 by Filippo Pagliani and Michele Rossi, PARK ASSOCIATI is an architectural design studio which works on a large scale. The investigation into the dynamics and flows in urban places forms the basis of a wide range of projects for the tertiary, manufacturing and residential sectors. Equally important for the studio is the planning of interiors which pays close attention to both craftsmanship and design. This adopts a transversal approach to the planning process and a vision that seeks to interrelate cultures and specializations, experiments with new technologies and is sensitive to the issues of sustainability and energy saving. Such an approach opens up new possibilities in terms of scope and vision, and on each occasion gives rise to original compositional landscapes where architecture, place, technology and materials combine to create different spatial forms. The projects on urban and architectonic scale underline the aptitude of PARK ASSOCIATI to research solutions that can combine local identity and technological innovation, this is confirmed by the recent awards in competitions and following realized projects. PARK ASSOCIATI’s projects have been exhibited in several exhibitions and published in italian and international magazines.
