Three separate but complementary souls: Six Gallery is the new space in Milan that merges a design gallery, the Sixième bistro and Irene Cuzzaniti’s landscape design boutique.
The concept came to life in a former 16th-century monastery by will of entrepreneur Mauro Orlandelli, who joined forces with art director Samuele Savio and architects Fanny Bauer Grung and David Lopez Quincoces. Through the large entrance door, you reach a courtyard that exudes “old Milan” charm: the smoke-gray, painted exposed brick wall is a beautiful backdrop for iconic pieces of furniture design by Giò Ponti and Le Corbusier, side by side with ethnic-style objects like Vietnamese vases and handmade carpets.
The area dedicated to food was created by Sergio Carnevale, drummer of the Italian band Bluvertigo, with musician Nic Cester. It’s a restaurant-bistro, a café and a cocktail bar all at once: a place where you can spend long afternoons in the city, as well as a location to rent for photo shootings and events, with magazines and limited-edition items always on display.
