TOM DIXON OPENS THE MANZONI IN MILAN
The new 100-cover restaurant has been created by Tom’s Design Research Studio. Pre-Opening at the beginning of April to coincide with Milan Design Week, it will re-open after Salone as a permanent restaurant and a showroom.
‘After years of doing 5-day exhibition in Milan, we finally decided that we had enough of putting such huge energy into pop-up interventions. We wanted to look at different ways of being present in Milan. With the city being so active and engaging right now, it is the right time to forget being temporary and build something permanent. Just like in London, we don’t think it’s enough to just have a showroom. We need a place where people slow down and experience our products in a live setting. There is nothing dustier than a conventional lighting and furniture showroom. But with The Manzoni, people are able to experience our new collections in an active context.’
- Tom Dixon on The Manzoni
Via Alessandro Manzoni, 5, Milan Open for Salone del Mobile from Tuesday 9th — Sunday 14th April 2019. During this week dining by invitation only. Following Salone del Mobile the restaurant will open to the public.
