This is the seventh opening by Area-17 Architecture & Interiors dedicated for Dispensa Emilia. The new prestigious venue is located within the wing side of the historic Central Station of Milan that overlooks Piazza Luigi Di Savoia. This area was recently renovated adding top-quality fast-casual restaurants exclusively accessible from the outside.
Compact vertical volumes define the whole project, from its storefront integration with the station’s nineteenth-century façade, to the double-height interiors. This distinctive quality is further emphasized through the design by an explicit vertical take on the elements characterizing the tigelleria’s original concept. Both the branded trelliswork and the gallery walls decorating the boiseries develop seamlessly up to the high ceilings from where the Imoon’s oversized lamp shades flows onto the dining tables. The open air section of the restaurant features Area-17’s Modena lamp special edition designed for Dispensa Emilia.
