Fratelli Gridelli translates into The Gridelli brothers, but refers in fact to siblings Tommie and Liza Gridelli. The Gridellis wanted to create a family business where they can nourish and eventually, pass their passion for Italian gastronomy on to the next generation. They were looking for a combination of Scandinavian/Italian with a mix of homestyle creative chaos and professionalism.

We chose materials that will become patinated and look even better over time. Carrera marble, glass, solid oak, leather and a mix of metals like stainless steel, brass and copper. The interiors function is to act as a scene where the food and all the imported products are in main focus.

A long S-shaped counter with display vitrines were clad with polished stainless steel to act as the centerpiece whilst creating an illusion of transparancy.

Hallway shelf/storageThe solution was to create a long shelf along the hallway as a combined display-shelf as well as stock storage.
