For the venture, restauranteurs Jeremiah Stone and Fabian Von Hauske teamed up with Neapolitan pizza specialist Anthony Mangieri, and asked designer Jordana Maisie to create an interior design that would complement the cuisine of Una Pizza Napoletana.
“The primary design challenge for Una Pizza Napoletana, was to create a singular cohesive space that represented two distinct identities: both culinary and aesthetics,” said a team member.
Una Pizza Napoletana has a 1,667-square-foot (155-square-metre) space that is divided into two sides, with dark tones used on one and a lighter palette across the other.
Both are created with penny rounds – circular tiles that look like coins, tessellated together in rows to create larger surfaces.
As seen in the image above, a partition made from perforated metal cuts the room in half. While a gap allows the dark-section seating to continue back, the other side of the screen demarcates the kitchen area, and wraps around its side.
This aesthetics resembles the industrial vibe they were going for and makes the space not only a culinary delight (if you’re crazy for pizza like myself) but also a «must stop» for all interior design lovers!
As people go inside Una Pizza Napoletana, the first thing they come across is the bar area, created with penny rounds, embracing the industrial look.
The darker side corner of this New York restaurant is great for those who are always on the run, and just want to grab a quick and delicious pizza, devour it (as I would) and get back to work, surrounded by amazing and differentiating aesthetics.
On the other side, we find the bar area, perfect to enjoy a glass of good wine and a chat. The materials used across the space are predominantly monochromatic, like the marble bar counter, and steel shelving behind that was built in Memphis.
A great complement to any bar area is the Kelly Bar Chair, a bar stool inspired by the curved and sculpted arches from the bar in the classic movie Casablanca.
This grey beauty from Essential Home would fit the industrial look like a glove as it’s not only stylish, but was also made to be comfortable and stand the test of time.
And yes, it is available in more colours 😉
Also, as we can see in the image above, the previously refered matte-black penny rounds starts from the door along one wall and a section of the floor, almost the full length of Una Pizza Napoletana.
The industrial aesthetics they were going for in this interior design is completed with built-in seating with matching wooden backs, following the dark strip all the way down, with small wooden tables and chairs lined up in front.
On the further back lighter palette side of Una Pizza Napoletana, we can find the kitchen from which we can see a white-tiled pizza oven and other food preparation areas, visible through a window, as is a separate enclosed, temperature-controlled room for making the dough.
This allows costumers to see their food being prepareted (no, they don’t just have pizza but many other culinary delights, if you’re not into pizza) with the best quality and gives a more welcoming feeling as nothing is hidding, complementing the industrial interior design aesthetics of this New York restaurant.
“The resulting design is one focused on craft, depth, vibrancy and material play.” said a team member, and we couldn’t agree more!
Tell us in the comments below what did you think of this New York restaurant, with not only culinary but also aesthetics delights.
I sure will visit it one day to devour some pizza!
