Six Project is a concept store that joins three distinct and complementary realities: a studio-gallery, the Sixième bistrot and the green design boutique Irene
In an intimate and secret corner of Milan, hidden behind a large main door, two-steps away from the Darsena, there’s a creative space where entrepreneurship, creativity, music, food, design and architecture meet. In a courtyard with green and tropical plants, that for a second grab the attention away from the balconies and arches that once belonged to the Sixteenth century monastery originally in via Scaldasole 7, today is the location of Six Project, a concept store that joins three distinct and complementary realities: a studio-gallery, the Sixième bistrot and the green design boutique Irene.
The idea comes from the entrepreneur Mauro Orlandelli, even if Six is a communal project. The coordinated concept and image are designed by art director Samuele Savio, whereas the space was given shape by David Lopez Quincoces and Fanny Bauer Grung. «We wanted everything, from the furnishings to the plants, to look like it had always been here », says Bauer Grung. The traces of the “old Milan” give way to an exotic riad full of neo-colonial accents mixed with classics from Twentieth Century design – armchairs by Gio Ponti, tables by Gabriella Crespi, seats by Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret and modern Scandinavian furniture.
The same atmosphere can be perceived at the Sixième bistrot, designed by Sergio Carnevale (musician and founder of the cocktail bar Zog in Ripa di Porta Ticinese), a private eatery in a dinette lit by Isamu Noguchi lanterns. In the greenest corner there’s the floral design studio and flower shop owned by Irene Cuzzaniti, garden and landscape architect who works in floral interior design, styling and outfitting. Her corner hosts concepts for photographic sets, a selection of specialized magazines and other limited edition objects.
