MONOCHROME – BRASSERIE, D.REAM
The Spanish design studio Lagranja, has rehabilitated a space situated in the old Brewery in Istanbul founded by the Bomonti Brothers from Switzerland. In this space they made a statement using elements from analogical photography. This is how Monochrome becomes a stylish place to be, where all the traditional elements of a photo studio are displayed in every single corner.


THE MONOCHROME CONCEPT
Monochrome Brasserie wants to borrow essential features from a professional photo studio, such: light boxes, diffusers, and umbrellas. The concept playfully juxtaposes different materials and surfaces retaining some features of the pre-existing structure like space where a singular louver is placed, right there some images by Turkish professional Photographer Mr. Tahsin Aydogmus are spread out, and below it, the high-back sofas specially design for this project. The concept is also visible in the bar designed to be a huge light box where the visitor can spot a collection of diapositive slides found by the studio members in Istanbul flea markets. Old camera showcases and photography books complete the setting and give a great atmosphere to this new and trendy space.


THE SPACE
Monochrome Brasseria is a project by Lagranja Design in Istanbul. Located in Bomonti area, named after Adolf and Walter Bomonti brothers, founders of the first brewery in Turkey. The area has a vibrant and cosmopolite essence.


This low-rise space strikes us with its furniture specially design by Lagranja. Once inside, the visitor can feel the resemblance to a photo studio—with its huge bar created to work as a light-box displaying several diapositive slides. A very special area at Monochrome Brasserie is where its high-back sofas are placed, below a stunning louver where images by the famous Turkish Photographer Mr. Tahsin Aydogmu are spread out on a shelf. The visitor can also go to the new Leica Shop through a door connecting both spaces.

En lo que un día fue la primera fábrica de cerveza de Turquía fundada hace cien años por los hermanos Bomonti, el estudio de diseño español Lagranja Design ha recreado un espacio inspirado en la fotografía tradicional. Así es como Monochrome Brasserie se transforma un moderno restaurante donde te ves rodeado de los elementos de esa fotografía analógica que ha vuelto para quedarse.


El concepto creativo de Monochrome se plasma en la barra, mesas y lámparas que usan elementos tradicionales para evocar un clásico estudio fotográfico. Se ha conseguido con éxito utilizar la luz como elemento creativo: diversas diapositivas encontradas en el rastro de Istanbul se exponen en la enorme barra y una de las mesas que hacen las veces de lightboxes. Sobre una celosía realizada en madera de roble, se exponen, en mayor formato, las imágenes del reconocido fotógrafo turco Mr. Tahsin Aydogmus.


Al entrar a Monochrome Brasseria, lo primero que llama nuestra atención son las sillas con el respaldo alto que se encuentran debajo de una celosía realizada en madera de roble que sirve como fondo donde se exhiben las fotografias de Mr. Tahsin Aydogmus. Al fondo del restaurante nos encontramos con una enorme barra donde se exhiben llamativas diapositivas. Con este nuevo espacio, concebido por la Lagranja Design se ha logrado con éxito combinar los elementos de la fotógrafía analógica en un espacio diáfano dándole una nueva imagen a lo que fue la primera cerveceria de Turquía.
