Milan is a worldwide design hub and if you’re a furniture fanatic you probably should read this article: now the city has a trendy new design destination, Furniture at Six, a Milan design gallery. David Lopez Quincoces and Fanny Bauer Grung, who started at Piero Lissoni architecture design studio, and established their own architecture firm called Quincoces-Dragò in 2009, are now, responsible for this hyped project.
Furniture at Six, the space in the Italian city’s Navigli neighborhood will house their offices, a florist, a bistro (designed by them), and a gallery where they will showcase vintage and contemporary furnishings. The gallery, which held a soft opening in April during Salone del Mobile, is open now by appointment, and will officially open for business in September.
For the design of the space, Bauer Grung and Lopez Quincoces left much of the building’s rawness intact, only accenting its striking architecture with modern, industrial touches—a steel-framed door is fitted into the arched entryway; gridded metal windows cover the vast, glowing skylight; brick walls were painted black and pipes and air ducts left exposed.
On the floor, blue-chip works by Gabriella Crespi and Pierre Jeanneret mix with an anonymous Italian sofa from the 1950s, reupholstered in a shimmering velvet. Soon, works from contemporary designers will join the mix.
