The Restaurant

For Caesarstone / Tom Dixon

Installation for The Restaurant by Tom Dixon and Caeserstone, Milan, 2016.

The Restaurant ran during Milan Design Week inside a deconsecrated church: the Rotonda della Besana. The installation consisted of four Tom Dixon-designed working kitchens and dining areas created for leading quartz surface brand Caesarstone.

Visitors were encouraged to move between the kitchens, with each one serving a different course from a menu devised by Arabeschi di Latte with Marta Pulini (Bibendum). Arabeschi di Latte selected a collection of four recipes that conjugate raw matter with traditional knowledge, imagining dishes that resemble the transforming powers of the elements: Fire, Water, Earth and Air within a sequence of four unique food settings.

The project was realised in collaboration with Bibendum.
