Dalva e Dito Restaurant – São Paulo, Brazil

Rosenbaum® brings the Brazilian colonial memorial back
One of the prominences of the restaurant are the walls made of clay using the SuperAdobe technic. The different tones of colors were created through the clay dying using herbs.

The project of the restaurant Dalva e Dito – from the chef Alex Atala, has come with the idea to bring the brazilian colonial food back.
From our understanding of this briefing, it was decided to create a space able to hold it and enlarge this work. We did this project with a huge stage, being possible to offer the esthetic and possible resources, functional and emotional, so that the brazilian colonial get expression at the space and at the present time.
Our research started with a study trip to Ouro Preto (MG), direct from the source of the preserved Brazilian architectonic patrimony.

The houses, churches, windows and doors were studied. As well the color of the floor and sky; the measures and proportions; the smell at meal times; the walk of the ones just walking. Everything caught our interest, the great arts, the latticework, wall tiles, and the hydraulic floors. We studied beyond Minas Gerais.
The Colonial Brazil was relived. We came back with a fresh brazilian memory in our heads and heart.
The concept of the project is the inclusion of this memory, because we believe there is no rescue of memories without the inclusion – of the culture, the object, the artist and the citizen.

Dalva e Dito was built this way. The proportions are generous. The walls are of Super Adobe, an evolution of mud wall; at the colors of the clay with natural dying, built by young people qualified by Arapoty Institute (Organization turned to diffuse the indigene wholly worth ).

The tables are made of remaining parts of wood floor of demolition. Large carpets of hydraulic floors re-cover the floor. The choice of the objects and arts privileges our popular art, makes a worth-mix and links the sophistication of the ambient.

Major Noize at Terminal 5

If you’ve been in LA at any point during the last three years, chances are you’ve heard about HARDfest. The city’s premiere party for some of the nastiest electro acts around, HARDfest has staged haunted Halloween mansions with the likes of Deadmau5 and Justice and brought heat to sweaty summer afternoons with all-out assaults from MSTRKRFT, Crookers, and Rusko. It was NYC’s turn this past Saturday: HARDfest partnered with The Bowery Presents to bring its signature blend of bass and blitz to Manhattan’s cavernous Terminal 5 with a lineup that included Russian noisemaker Proxy, dancehall upstarts Major Lazer and electro wunderkind Boys Noize.
