Is Decorating With Bones the Next Big Trend?

In Guadalajara, Mexico, Hueso, created by celebrity chef Alfonso Cadena and designed by his brother Ignacio Cadena of Cadena+Asociados Concept Design, has chilling yet elegant interiors. In the restaurant's renovated modernist 1940 building, the designer covered the walls with more than 10,000 cast-aluminium animal bones, which were mounted onto timber blocks in artful displays alongside other collected objects like butcher's knives, cooking utensils, and scientific drawings—all painted in white. It's like one giant curiosity cabinet. A salvage shop meets artist's studio meets graveyard.
