developed by vancouver-based designer omer arbel, ‘54.2 tacofino‘ was conceived as an interior for a new east vancouver restaurant ancillary
to a commissary serving two street food trucks. the room was manifested of as a series of stratified horizontal layers:
a haphazard bent copper tube suspension system; lit, blown glass pendants made to have cavities in which succulents and cacti are planted.
reclaimed wood slabs serve as tables, benches and a bar top, while a forest of steel tubes making up the table and bench legs to contrast
the raw concrete floor. the visitor pierces through the architectural fabric of the building as they make their path through the room.
