Cinque Terre, a rugged and striking area of coastline on the Italian Riviera, is made up of five historic villages: Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore. A UNESCO World Heritage Site in the Liguria region of north-west Italy, Cinque Terre is a place filled with colourful homes, robust vineyards, hardy fishermen and bustling trattorias.

Taking its name from the Italian region, Cinque Terre Ristorante in Seattle is filled with the smells and tastes of Liguria: from fresh mussels and octopus to anchovies and shrimp, and from artisanal pasta and pesto to handmade focaccia. Doubtless worth a visit if you happen to be in Seattle, at Cinque Terre Ristorante you can enjoy fine Italian fare in the company of LZF’s Link lamp.

LZF’s lustrous lamps are often used in a range of restaurant projects, from the ethereal Koi in FISH by José Andrés (the Bahamas) to the spectacular Candelabro in Restaurante Alameda (Madrid) and the affable Link floor lamp in Restaurant La Boscana (Lleida). Organic, physical and tactile, LZF’s carefully crafted range of wood veneer lamps add warmth and charm to any environment. Their noble, natural, versatile and aesthetic qualities, are just a few of the reasons they appeal to restaurants (and many similar settings). In Cinque Terre Ristorante, a modern Italian eatery in Seattle, LZF’s Link lamp is easy on the eye, the perfect addition to this contemporary space.

When illuminated, wood veneer heightens the atmosphere of a room.

One of the key attributes of wood veneer in lighting design is its beautiful translucent aspect. When illuminated, the wood veneer heightens the atmosphere of a room, stimulates conversation and creates intimate moments of pleasure. At Cinque Terre Ristorante, LZF’s Link pendants float gracefully above a number of modest dining tables, their billowy form both decorative and decorous. Designed by Ray Power, Link is a lamp that adds poise and a certain sense of indulgence, but without any pretence or facade: Link is thoughtful, smart and unassuming, the ideal lamp for a clean, modern restaurant environment.
