Vito Nesta is a designer who graduted in Interior Design in Florence; although originally from Puglia, he lives and works in Milan. One of his latest project is BOABOA, a Brazilian Fusion restaurant located in Via Pontaccio 5 in the Brera district of Milan. The space is characterized by three colors with their different shades: rust, blue and bottle green.
On the background wall stands out the Casablanca wallpaper in blue and ice gray tones, designed by Vito for Devon & Devon. On the adjacent wall a collage of vintage mirrors recalls the Venetian technique of the early sixteenth century. At the time, in fact, due to the impossibility of producing large mirrors, smaller mirrors were placed side by side to cover large surfaces an example is the Royal Palace of Caserta.
The Boaboa space seems to be suspended between heaven and earth and softly brings the viewer closer to the colors of Brazil. In fact, the floor is a resin in shades of sand, while the ceiling is glazed with blue as if it were a sky. The colorful lamps by Servomuto and tables and chairs by Calligaris complete the decor of the room. The bathroom, on the other hand, is a space that allows you to isolate yourself and to take a little trip: when you close the door you are surrounded by a seaweed jungle among which many goldfish swim silently, painted on the Samoa wallpaper for Devon & Devon – designed by Vito Nesta. The same red hue of the fish is used to color the ceiling of the room.
