When it comes to the design of great restaurants and hotels, the Italian interior design studios are amongst the biggest names. At the Giuseppe Mengoni designed Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, a new Milan restaurant has been crowded with tourists and locals…Michelin-starred chef Carlo Cracco’s newest venture is more than just a restaurant!
Connected over the four-story food emporium features a café, patisserie, wine bar – holding over 10000 bottles and more than 2000 labels – private lounge- with its own entrance on via Silvio Pellico – in addition to a fine dining restaurant.
In preserving and accenting the arched doorways, elaborately carved friezes and ornate wooden panel work, Milanese designers Laura Sartori Rimini and Roberto Peregalli of Studio Peragalli have cleaved close to the aesthetics and spirit of the Galleria, though without descending into cliché.
On each floor, the architecture housing the elevator is different to match with the four floors’ distinct styles; the elevator is decorated in glass and faux-bronze on the ground floor, gilded metal and mirrors on the first floor, and a dark patina in the wine cellar.
Instead, modern touches are lightly inserted into the intimate spaces which are anchored with rust-red carpets sporting whorls and circles, mosaic floors, tiles inspired by a Giò Ponti design, and bright wallpaper patterned with multi-hued daisies.
Peregalli and Remini drew inspiration from the Galleria’s architecture but making sure to add more contemporary elements from the following decades up to the 40’s.
Best of all for aesthetes, the design is hardly second fiddle to the cuisine. From punchy floral wallpaper to an elevator clad in a mirrored silver, guests are sure to be satiated by this feast for the eyes.
