Cervecería Islia is a modern, distinctive bar located in the town of Ordes, in the heart of the province of A Coruña, Spain. Designed by interior design studio PF1, the premises appeal, with their organic forms and backlit furnishings created using HI-MACS® acrylic stone.
The space has been divided into several areas, designed after extensive research into all the aspects of the surroundings, making it possible to determine which elements to emphasise. “We did a long study, which helped us realise that one of the most outstanding values is the nature surrounding this space. From this we designed a space that would fit sympathetically into the regional market,” explains Loli Moroño, creative director at interior design studio PF1 Interiorismo.
PF1 faced an interesting challenge, since the space was very restricted, with a narrow entrance that created a dark, crowded back area. So the architects decided to use dramatic LED lighting to brighten the whole area.
One of the client’s main requirements was that the materials had to be high quality, functional, and sustainable. Thus the designers chose HI-MACS®, which apart from the previous properties, is also translucent, so made working with LED lighting possible. “We needed materials that were innovative, but also guaranteed to be durable and easy to maintain. We went for LG Hausys’ Solid Surface material since it offered the guarantees to meet the client’s requirements,” says Moroño.
