Pastel shades and finishes Nordic in taste, welcome guests at Cicero Bistro in Rome’s Prati area. Tommaso Guerra designed the restaurant – open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, but also ideal for an evening drink with friends.

Irony and sweetness are the main ingredients of the perfect recipe that gives life to the ambience of this Roman bistro.

The small sitting room- conversation area at Cicero Bistro is dominated by a large nest made with hundreds of intertwined. wooden branches. An installation estranging, but at the same time amusing, which adds character to the room. Photo Leda Ricchi

The wooden counter has been designed as a table where the patrons and the bartender can chat, whilst the 55 light shades handmade in fabric and suspended at different heights capture the attention and give rhythm to the bar area. But what attracts the eye is the collection of small houses for birds that covers an entire wall. These miniature abodes, made of aged wood and adorably naive, ideally connect to large nest of intertwined branches that overlooks the sitting room. When the “misplaced” becomes art …

The Moodboarders is a glance into the design world, which, in all of its facets, captures the extraordinary even within the routine. It is a measure of the times. It is an antenna sensitive enough to pick-up on budding trends, emerging talents and neglected aesthetics. Instead of essays, we use brief tales to tune into the rhythm of our world. We travelled for a year without stopping, and seeing as the memory of this journey has not faded, we have chosen to edit a printed copy. We eliminated anything episodic, ephemeral or fading, maintaining a variety of articles that flow, without losing the element of surprise, the events caught taking place, and the creations having just bloomed.
