Taiyo Milano

Café Restaurant

When developing the concept for this restaurant, Italian architect Maurizio Lai was led by contemporary modernism and created an intriguing dialog of shape and light, with a lot of attention to detail. We see textile ceilings, back-lid glass walls, combinations of metal and wood and spectacular light installations. Custom made furnishings add to the design of the 600 m2 space. It has a main dining area and two separate rooms on one level and a third separate room in the basement. In Japanese, Taiyo means ‘sun’. The idea aims to introduce a positive attitude into the space.

The mirrors in the ground floor invite you to take closer look.
