Fabio Fantolino revamps a Torinese printing house into Dash Kitchen

TURIN – Designed by the local architect Fabio Fantolino, Dash Kitchen brews industrial aesthetics with an interpretation of the dazzling 70s for a glossy interior. 

A polished 600-sq-m footprint grinds lounge and dining scenes into one. Glossy metals meet velvet, leather and Alcantra-upholstered furniture. Chrome tubes define the front of the house, lined by a banquette of black leather, formulating a dynamite impression. Along one side, a prolonged mirror steel counter is studded with broiling fabric vents and sleek beer taps.

An exquisite tinge of rosso levanto marble marks a passageway to the intimo interior, or intimate area. A play on the exuberant rhythm of sculpted armchairs spreads the seventies vibe with finesse.

Set alongside darkened brick walls, furniture in bright velvet portrays an imperious demeanour to distinguish the space. Under the shades of Phanto’s Tango, Delta Light’s Diro and Fabbian’s Beluga lamps among others, the atmosphere intensifies with contrast. Atoning to balance the texture palette, walnut wood elements by Falegnameria Fiore soften the ambience.
