Crossandra

About the Project

“Pastelería Crossandra” is a family business dedicated to the world of pastry and recognized by the famous traditional catalan “cannelloni”. In 2010 it took a step forward and opened to its customers the “Shop of Cannelloni” with the intention of improving the service and open new markets. “Shop of Cannelloni” is specialized in the elaboration of totally handmade product with the best ingredients.

The new store was designed by the architects Carreras+ Garraux, who proposed a diaphanous and warm space, using wood as the main material. The clients wanted a flexible furniture for showcasing local products for sale (oil, wine, etc …), while also acting as a warehouse to store product in stock. Under this premise, the furniture should be sufficiently flexible and functional to meet both requirements. To this end, we designed a modular system for opening doors, so that they stay hidden once opened. When opened, a system of LED lighting integrated into the movement allows it to highlight and illuminate the exposed product.
