A new boulangerie in Milan

Baguette srl

Vudafieri-Saverino Partners has designed the new concept for a France bakery opened in Milan. With Égalité, Tiziano Vudafieri and Claudio Saverino have put on show the savoir-faire of the French boulangère tradition. The large laboratory and oven in the main room put the work of the bakers at the centre of the visual narrative with their bread making directly visible to customers. The design combines 1950s bakery elements (the large yellow-orange polished counter, the beige tile wall) and a selection of materials that expresses simplicity and authenticity (such as the solid wood shelving) with an amused look at the iconography of the Parisian boulangerie and café with the over-the-top zinc bar. 
The premises – 215 sq m - located at the corner of Via Melzo and Via Lambro – have seven windows on the street. Bright and intimate at the same time - also thanks to the original plan layout of islands with small and large tables, highs and lows, benches or stools.
