vudafieri-saverino partners has completed the interiors for a new milanese restaurant inspired by by essentiality, simplicity and truth. the aim was to focus on the guests relationship with food, using warm tones, dominated by ‘marsala’ red, that hark back to the fundamental relationship with wine and land.

røst is a brand new restaurant that brings in milan the concept of circular, simple and authentic cuisine, with the rediscovery of traditional italian dishes: poor meat cuts, forgotten foods and peculiar vegetables. an offer based on essentiality, simplicity, truth: key words that vudafieri-saverino partners has translated in the interior design project.

located in the heart of the city’s new food district of porta venezia neighborhood, the local design firm has translated the restaurants menu into an interior design project. the restaurant, which overlooks the street with two windows, is on the ground floor of a building in old milan, in a location that was for years an auto parts shop.

it consists of two rooms: the main one, which gravitates around the bar counter, and a smaller one, overlooking the open kitchen. adorning the walls are lime frescoes, characterized by two shades, the darker of which creates a sort of irregular boiserie.

the same colours are used in the ceramic cladding of the kitchen and in the adjacent room. in contrast, marble, brass, velvet and leather unostentatiously characterize the setting which is typically milanese. ‘bright and intimate at the same time, røst gives the feel of somewhere that is very much lived in, as if it had always been part of the neighbourhood,’ the architects explain.

at the entrance, a wall displays the restaurant’s major players: it is the wall of fame, 16 ceramic plates – each representing a food or wine producer – whose space arrangement draws the ø of røst. on the opposite side, the bar counter stands out for its long solid oak top and the vertical covering, made up of natural brass profiles of different section.

vudafieri-saverino partners wanted to create a continuity with past, which can be seen in the decision to preserve the original seminato in porphyry floor. the chandelier in the smaller room, designed by tiziano vudafieri, assembles headlamps of cars of different ages — a tribute to the history of the auto parts shop that previously occupied the space.
