Weaving Peruvian and Japanese


Peruvian cuisine meets Japanese in a new endeavor whose partners include Ferran Adrià of elBulli fame. In Barcelona, the restaurant – Pakta – will be serving the fusion of food cultures known as Nikkei.  Pakta’s interior, designed by Barcelona-based El Equipo Creativo, combines Japanese traditional aesthetic of clean lines and scaffolding of wood with a strikingly beautiful reference to traditional Peruvian weaving. The space itself is turned into a giant, cozy loom, with colorful thread running throughout.
