Interior designer Jose Manuel Ferrero, was the obvious choice when Ibiza’s Hard Rock Hotel opened tapas restaurant Estado Puro in 2014. The resulting environment is both bold design statement, yet warm and comfortable, and is perfect for long evening meals or quick bites.
Much of the furniture was sourced from Spanish manufacturer Sancal, and attention to detail abounds in the Tea barstool, which has the Estado Puro logo embroidered onto the back pad. Also by Sancal are the Casta chairs, based on the castanet, and the Pion tables which are modelled on chess pieces. Arper supplied the Saya chairs designed by Lievore Altherr Molina. Here traditional elements have been given a modern twist in this quirky yet down-to-earth establishment, where Ferrero’s characteristic play on elegance, drama and history contrasts perfectly with his tongue-in-cheek take on design.
