A luxury restaurant in the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II in Milan features Marazzi tiles throughout. Cracco, the latest project by award-winning chef Carlo Cracco, was undertaken by architects Laura Sartori Rimini and Roberto Peregalli from the architecture firm Peregalli.
Comprising 5 floors including a café bistro, a restaurant, a winery and a private events room, Cracco specified Marazzi tiles for each kitchen and bathroom. The washrooms utilised the refined Allmarble marble-effect in two finishes (Saint Laurent and Statuario) creating a contrast between black and white. The luxury of the location was further amplified by the gold accents and mosaic floor.
The kitchens feature Marazzi’s iconic Triennale “four curve” tile designed by Gio Ponti and Alberto Rosselli in the 60s. Chosen in the colours Avorio, Ocra, and Nero the tiles offer a unique style, similar to a houndstooth pattern. The classic look is completed by Marazzi’s Mystone Lavagna Nero 300 by 600mm stone-effect tiles which decorate the floors.
Each chosen collection adds an element of luxury, working alongside traditional fixtures and interiors to offer elegance and sophistication. The restoration project demonstrates the beauty to be found in marble-effects and stoneware, and the benefits they provide when refurbishing a listed property.
