The restyling of Quadri in Venice By Philippe Starck

The French designer Philippe Starck has collaborated with Venetian artisans to restore this 18th century restaurant, refreshing the carpeted walls, chandeliers and decadent furnishings.

Quadri is located at the northern end of Piazza San Marco in Venice, behind the arched openings of the portico of the square. The coffee, which has been open since 1775, is now owned by the Alajmo family.

After noticing that the restaurant had fallen into a state of neglect, the brothers Massimiliano and Raffaele Alajmo turned to the French designer Philippe Starck to "bring back the original splendor of space in a contemporary context".

Instead of finding a way to hide the potential water damage, Starck decided to exploit this decay in an artistic way and replace parts of the furniture with brass parts, easily oxidized in the presence of moisture. The result is truly extraordinary.
