Fondazione Prada Opens Luxury Restaurant

The Torre Restaurant is located at the new building of Fondazione Prada unveiled during Milan design week 2018. The design is so radically different created by Rem Koolhaas with Chris van Duijn and Federico Pompignoli from the OMA studio. Take a look at today’s article: Fondazione Prada Opens Luxury Restaurant!

 

Fondazione Prada

Koolhaas defines the space as “a collage of themes and pre-existing elements combining works of art and design furniture”.

 

Fondazione Prada 

The Torre is located on the sixth floor and divided into two areas: the bar and the restaurant. The two rooms are characterized by the contrast between the large floor-to-ceiling windows, which offer an unprecedented view of the city of Milan.

 

The bar has a central counter, with a bottle suspended with spirits and international liqueurs, where it is possible to have a cocktail and a light dinner. On the left is a fireplace surrounded by Soviet armchairs and Eero Saarinen’s Tulip tables. Here are two remarkable artworks – Cappa per Ccaminetto (1949) and Testa di Medusa (1948-54) – by Lucio Fontana, while the polychrome ceramic Pilastro (1947) by the same artist introduces to the restaurant hall.

The first two are designed with modern furniture, wooden tables and Executive chairs by Eero Saarinen and feature a selection of paintings by William N. Copley, Jeff Koons, Goshka Macuga and John Wesley.
