Diving Into Milan Design Week 2018: Six Gallery – Local architecture-design studio Quincoces-Dragò & Partners created a design sanctuary inside a 16th-century Milanese monastery.
From the mind of entrepreneur Mauro Orlandelli, Six Gallery is the base for a collective of creatives that includes Spanish-Norwegian architects David Lopez Quincoces and Fanny Bauer Grung of Quincoces-Dragò & Partners, the husband-and-wife team that forms the studio behind its design and curation.
During Salone del Mobile, the duo also launched a complementary collection of furniture. “We wanted to create a cultural hub where every partner contributes to projects in a different way.” says Bauer Grung of the space, which houses a florist, design gallery and bistro. “The gallery is like a centre for research. It changes constantly.”
Shades of the desert inform the gallery’s palette. The duo took inspiration from a sunset-hued melting pot of North African architectural influences and colours drawn from the American desert. “It’s not about having one-off collectors’ items or very expensive things,” says Bauer Grung. “It’s more about the atmosphere, what works together and what we’re working on in that moment so clients can visit and understand our vision.”

The Six Gallery aims at combining design from different epoques and origins without being restrained by any boundries. The pieces shown range from collector’s pieces to anonymous ones, which together tell the tale of an ever-changing space and aesthetic.
Overall, Quincoces-Dragò & Partners is a full architectural and design studio that specializes in luxury retail, hospitality and residential spaces. They bring up dialog, strategy and design in order to achieve the clients’ target. They are made up of a team of designers, architects, graphics and 3D artists that produce all our work in-house.
