Olga Nur & 80,000 Wooden Dowels

80,000 wooden dowels were used to create a spectacular type of topography within the interior of Olga Nur, a new restaurant in the city in the Belo Horizonte Brazil.

Designed by arquitetos associados, the dowels were cut to different lengths in order to create a spatially diverse space that is both eye-catching and welcoming to those walking by. The dowel installation is intended to foster openness and integration between the restaurant and the street, while also distinguishing between interior and exterior environments.

The spectacular installation is complimented by a relatively simple palette of accompanying materials that includes black lacquer, steel and custom designed pine furniture designed by the same architect. Beautiful!
