Superba Food + Bread
Reminiscent of a modern-day Brasserie, the focus of the design of the second Superba Food + Bread Manhattan Beach adjacent location was to provide for an inspired day-to-night transitional space with a nod to Superba’s Venice roots. The new restaurant incorporates simple, raw materials into a variety of custom designed details that evoke a refined dining experience within the framework of the playful Superba spirit.
Custom banquettes with needled felt backs line the space, paired with refurbished wooden Kyoto chairs. Steel columns serve as booth table supports, over which doctored off-the-shelf IKEA fixtures provide a warm glow. The custom steel Schweiss bi-fold door and concrete two-tops throughout were all a part of Electric Bowery’s design intent to tie the open ceiling and raw shell components together with an elevated dining experience.
