The DoubleTree by Hilton Turin Lingotto, located in the historic former FIAT plant designed by Renzo Piano, has recently been involved in a restyling coordinated by the architect Michele Arcarese, who has chosen seats and tables by Pedrali to furnish the restaurant of this iconic Turinese space.
The new project brings a more contemporary mood to the building, while conservings its original architectural features: high ceilings, large windows and the historic automotive track on the roof.
The space is marked by the contrast between curved and straight lines, underlined by the use of warm and cool materials like wood and bronze-plated metal. The dominant tones are those of cherry wood, bronze-plated brushed brass and intense blue.
The restaurant run by the chef Daniele Giolito is a majestic, essential space that can immediately be taken in by the gaze thanks to the panoramic elevators. The new luminous paneling has a dual aesthetic and technical function: it makes the space warmer and more welcoming, blending perfectly with the cherry cladding, while protecting the walls from impact, adapting to the existing geometric design but also reshaping the space.
The furnishings include the Inox tables and the velvet-covered seats of the Tweet collection designed by Marc Sadler, along with the Jazz chairs by Pedrali, which contribute to create a refined, comfortable style.
