The Llanterna Bar is located within
the auditorium complex designed
by Rafael Moneo, which at the time
took particular interest in using pieces
of furniture that were designed
and produced by national companies.
A selection of 100% ‘made in Spain’ design furniture and a
careful lighting and distribution of space, convert the Llanterna
Bar into the most intimate place to have a coffee after
So when, Andrea Soto, interior designer,
took over the project, he found it vital to follow
that line. “We believe that the Barcelona
Auditorium has to showcase local design,” he
The symmetrical and sober architecture of Moneo
has to be respected and to form part of the
Llanterna interior design. The roofs, the walls
and the reddish wooden bar were kept, and the
two ends of the restaurant were covered with a
grey velvet curtain, illuminated with projectors
that gave the space a stage-design character.
Andrea Soto says that they wanted to create “a
quiet and inspiring space, where you can reflect
on musical pieces, and which makes you feel
as if you were inside one of the halls drinking
coffee”. This theatrical environment is achieved
through the separation of spaces, projected
lighting and the use of the curtains.
Continuing with this intimate and elegant
aesthetic, the bar is dominated by wood and
leather in wine and mustard colours on the furniture.
On the other hand, the lighting has been
projected onto several layers: indirect, general
and punctual; in order to separate
spaces and to generate a warm,
cosy and stage-design atmosphere.
Intimate and welcoming spaces
The bar pivots around three large
columns around the dining area, and at the
ends where the area of cafés and music space
are located; where the client can sit down and
listen to a live piano under the images of great
artists who have passed through the halls of
the auditorium. These areas located at the ends
are the preferred corners of the interior designer.
“Previously, it was a residual space, without
life, where customers could not sit down. Now
it is an intimate and cosy space with beautiful
lighting, which invites you to spend hours sitting
without thinking about the time “.
