A Tour of The Unto Bistro in Palermo

Unto is a burger bistro based in the heart of Palermo, Italy. The laid-back venue with a bit of “hipster” vibe serves tender burgers accompanied by a local bread. The establishment was designed by Studio DiDeA Architetti Associati.

“The former antique shop’s space was composed by interconnected rooms, that we turned into a singular grey-tones place marked by an extended counter made of visual concrete and wood. Over the counter, a suspended volume of perforated black metal panel acts as a little storage, and adds support for a series of adjustable lamps. The materials selection (perforated metalpanel, visual concrete, grey painted walls, iron stools) reminds industrial atmosphere and creates a strong contrast with the early 20th century decorated floor, left exposed. The iron front doors open up to the street, providing a sense of continuity between interior and exterior spaces, and underlining Unto’s urban character,” says Studio DiDeA
