Located in central Almería, the Vaniela restaurant features a cosy Mediterranean look, with a design that is as fresh as the Italian cuisine it serves. The design surrounds the atmosphere with warm colours and a play of textures that give character and personality to the bar area, the dining room and the private area. “For this interior design project I was inspired by our sea, emulating the Mediterranean style with fresh yet warm materials”, explains Lucas Paris Pérez, the man behind the design of this new gastronomic space in the city. 

All the spaces are visually connected, not only through the colours, but also through the materials chosen, among which Dekton stands out. “Dekton Umber had the perfect tone I needed for this project”, says the architect. Alongside Dekton, there are a number of elements that round off the cosy and plain ambience. “The lighting and its unique elements, the neutral colour scheme with touches of greenery and a very special piece made of freeze-dried wheat stalks provide the perfect ambience for an unforgettable experience”, says Lucas Paris Pérez.

In & out: a dialogue of colours

From the very entrance of the restaurant, you can admire the beauty of Dekton on the façade, “as if it was a waterfall”, says the designer. Its intense colour, inspired by Port Laurent natural stone, offers a world of detail and texture, with its golden veins contrasting against a dark background. A colour that creates a play of contrasts with the interior floors in Dekton Nacre, “a textured colour, light and fresh, that I chose for the floor of the restaurant and the bathroom area”, he explains. 

“I designed the bar top in the form of a rectangular cube in Dekton Umber. It is situated at the entrance, to welcome guests in a nice and warm way”, says the architect. This element plays a leading role in terms of colour thanks to its terracotta tone, full of character.

A very special private dining area

For the private dining area, with blocks of Travertino Olivillo stone, the architect designed a mural of irregular shapes that gives the space great personality. “Each stone block, measuring 10x10x15 cm, was placed one by one to form this large piece, 6 metres long and 3 metres high. For its design, I took inspiration from the vertical wall in the ‘Cala del Palmito’, a cove on the coast of Almería bathed by the Mediterranean Sea”, says the designer.

The same design concept was extended to the bathrooms, using the same elements and textures to create a sense of continuity. Once again, the warmth of Dekton Umber stands out on the wall, this time in combination with Dekton Moone, a pure, white and timeless colour. 

Versatile, sustainable and durable

In addition to its powerful aesthetic, the designer chose Dekton for its technical features, especially for “the wide range of formats available, as well as the sustainable composition and physical properties of all of them”, he says. Its resistance to stains, scratches, extreme temperatures and ease of maintenance make it the perfect surface for areas subject to high traffic and heavy use, such as this restaurant.

“Working with these materials allows me to express emotions, combining them with textures and colours in a very versatile way”.
