PECK Citylife - Milan

Vudafieri-Saverino partners has completed PECK, a restaurant, wine shop, deli, and cocktail bar in Milan‘s Citylife shopping district. The interior pays tribute to the city’s post-war aesthetics, with floors that recall the historical Milanese stone extracted from the quarries of lake Iseo, and wooden lozenges on the restaurant’s ceiling that reference the villa Necchi Campiglio di Portaluppi located in the city’s porta Venezia area. The vertical support posts holding up the shelves recall the form of Milan’s characteristic torre Velasca built by the BBPR in the 50s, while the decorative lamps throughout the interior feature a modernist, post-industrial quality reminiscent of the aesthetic tradition of Milanese buildings. The Livia chair, designed by Gio Ponti, and the Livio bar stool complete the research on post-war aesthetics.
