PECK CITY LIFE
Delicatessen, restaurant, wine bar, cocktail bar
Peck CityLife is located in a organically-shaped pavilion in Piazza Tre Torri, central in relation to the entrance to the Shopping District and the architecture which is symbolic of the new city.
Vudafieri-Saverino Partners defined a concept capable of expressing the fundamental features of Peck’s historic identity, bringing it into a design which is at once timeless and highly contemporary. It is, first and foremost, a project of “designing relationships”, namely those between different people and times. The interior design was structured so as to provide a narrative continuity throughout the different areas to create a fluid relationship between the delicatessen, restaurant, wine bar and cocktail bar. Four places which differ in their function and relationship with the public, but which all make for a unique experience.
The space pays tribute to post-war Milan, the reconstruction, the economic miracle, the hard work and vision of the Milanese - the Milan in which the legend of Peck established itself - without making the place didactic. Subliminal, rather than explicit, messages of a sober yet bold Milanese character. The aim was to create an environment rich with symbolic elements to reconcile Peck’s historical identity with its more modern and contemporary dimension. The iconic materials of Peck, such as wood, black iron and copper, have been reinterpreted in a new way.
