Different locations in Milano


During the annual Design Week, design extravaganza can also be seen in the world of food, thanks to special events and initiatives born to value local excellences.

Lavazza Tiny Bar


From 17 to 21 April

On the occasion of the Fuorisalone, Italian coffee company Lavazza has teamed up with irreverent art magazine Toiletpaper to offer customers a special pop-up bar featuring an unconventional, pop
atmosphere inspired by the new Tiny espresso machine (see the above picture). At the Mediatica Santa Teresa in Brera (via della Moscova, 28), you can visit the playful, whimsical installation cum cafeteria where the new Lavazza Tiny machines take centre stage. Besides Lavazza branded coffee the pop-up cafeteria features a rich food&beverage offer curated by the Training Center Lavazza, featuring reinterpretations of some of the best Italian favourites and creative delicacies powered by Coffeetail melting up mixology and coffee together. The atmosphere is also enlivened by special entertainment options conjuring up food, music and design, with a programme curated by Rollover Milano.

Mixology Design Week at Emporio Armani caffè

During the whole period of the Design Week, Emporio Armani Caffè features an extended opening time until 11.30pm and offers its guests the chance to dine with a new menu paired with exclusive cocktails.

Design Hostel – Favole al Telefono


From 17 to 21 April

Favole al Telefono is a bit of an installation, a bit of a multi-sensory interactive exhibition hosted within the spaces of the Design Hostel at makers Hub, in Bovisa District and featuring the participation of different foodie hubs in the city, among which the two L’Ov restaurants (see the above photo). An old telephone by SIP is located at the entrance of the Design Hotel and, by dialing a number, guests can hear the story of some of the most historical Italian food brands straight from the phone. The different products, whose history is being told “on call” can be savoured in various locations in the city, as a sort of widespread museum. In this case, L’Ov hosts the famous Rossella candy, invited by designer Luisa Spagnoli at the end of the ’20s and considered a symbol to an era.

Free access at Design Hostel.
L’Ov restaurants, viale Premuda 14 and via Solari 34. Open Mon-Fri 8.30am-12am and Sat-Sun 9.30am-12am.
