Vapiano Barcelona

Mangelberger makes Vapiano on the Mediterranean the centre of attention.

Vapiano SE is an enterprise for the foodservice industry in more than 30 countries. So it’s as if it was made for standardised electrical switchboard units with energy management and light control. That’s why as soon as we perfected our electrical switchboard system for Vapiano in Denmark, we moved down south.

In Barcelona the Vapianisti opened a new restaurant in Diagonal Mar. This shopping mall, with more than 17 million visitors each year, is one of the largest and most successful in the Mediterranean metropolis. Vapiano fits right in.

The restaurant covers an area of 1,100 m2 and can seat 300 guests, and this includes a lounge for evening drinks. It’s the perfect setting for integrating a skilfully designed lighting system that not only saves energy – but also provides atmosphere.

An Australian in Spain

We took care of the technical preparation of the electrical switchboard unit, adapted the proven German Vapiano-Standard to the Spanish conditions and naturally took over the coordination of its delivery and launching.

Our on-site project manager showed once again what makes Mangelberger stand out: Joe Lopez is an Australian with Iberian roots, speaks Spanish fluently and really gets the Catalan mentality. This means the work wasn’t just only technically perfect but we also made it a priority to understand what made the customer tick.
