Big Fish

Located in a small street in Barcelona’s El Born, Big Fish is a concept restaurant founded by a family of seafood merchants. A fresh and dynamic interior design by Lázaro Rosa-Violán, has been achieved using period furniture and fittings mixed with striking modern elements, many of which nod to the provenance of the restaurant’s cuisine. Centre stage is a giant, cascading light fitting made of disks of shells, whilst old ship lanterns illuminate the bar area. Worn leather sofas are mixed with mid-century modern chairs in the dining area, lending it a cosy, ad-hoc air whilst a spectacular bar evokes the charm of a 19th century saloon.

Ship’s lanterns and elegant caryatides decorate the sushi bar

The bar area evokes an old-fashioned saloon

Brick walls and a carved fireplace add history to a new locale

An abundance of design details create a ‘readable story’ for a new restaurant

Mirrors add the allusion of space in the bathrooms
