The Commune Social located at the Design Republic Design Commune is a new tapas restaurant designed by Neri&Hu Design and Research Office of Shanghai.

The food concept is a fresh and modern take on Spanish tapas, where the small dishes served are refined interpretations of the tapas genre with an international twist.

The design approach is similar to 22 Ships in that Neri&Hu emphasised raw materials to accentuate the “freshness” of visual encounter, while making associations to the freshness and rawness of food.

Materials such as raw iron, reclaimed wood, unfinished concrete, and exposed bricks all work together to form a tapestry of texture and patterns.

The four adjoining rooms provide also a communal and social aspect that is in the original spatial concept of the Social restaurant group. The moving feasting idea is a way for diners to be active in the restaurant, and engage in social activities while dining.
