Named after the traditional Lebanese flatbread, this cosy, 82-cover restaurant has been realised earlier this year in Brazil’s largest city, São Paulo by two Brazilian architectural practices, ODVO and Mínima. Featuring light-filtering, concrete Arabesque, Manish enables its diners to ‘see without being seen’ during the day while ‘during the night, the concept of artificial lighting promotes the opposite: for those who are out muxarabi is in the negative and all the internal atmosphere, created by diverse and customised lighting solutions, is revealed, inviting customers to come and experience the sensations offered by several different angles of the house.’

Restaurant’s striking lighting design has been developed by Acenda Lighting Project studio who explain: ’The design of the restaurant has a special concern with the environment. The lighting and natural ventilation are present in the elegant decoration. The original trees were kept, giving charm and freshness to the lounge.’
