Spazio7 is not only located within a space of contemporary art - the Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo- but it is a work of art itself.
The café and its furniture were designed by the Italian artist Rudolf Stingel, while the restaurant was created by Claudio Silvestrin, the architect that conceived the Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo exhibition space. Silvestrin is renowned for having planned the Oblix Restaurant, located inside the skyscraper Shard, designed by Renzo Piano in London.
The sober walls, including one in Lecce stone that recalls the façade of the building, and the concrete floor are setting of a minimal decor, bestowing the context a contemporary atmosphere.
The work of Italian artist Amedeo Martegani dominates the room with his Untitled, a three-color wall painting on wallpaper. The work covers two angled walls of the room and is a night view of a hedge, with isolated and bright leaves on a black background. A series of multicolored silicone vases by Alessandro Ciffo complete the rectangular, peculiar main location.
The kitchen offers a cuisine with a contemporary twist, representing a journey through the authentic flavors of Italian cuisine, with a particular attention to Piedmont’s culinary tradition. Rigorous in its simplicity, each course enhances the quality of every selected ingredient.
