Vyta Boulangerie Italiana

A blend of light oak and black polymer make a dramatically elegant (yet cozy) bakery.

Simple bread is an elegant experience at Vyta Boulangerie Italiana in Turin, Italy.

‘When people go to Vyta, I want them to feel it’s place that evokes the ancient rite of eating together,’ says architect Daniela Colli of ColliDanielArchitetto. The Italian bakery is nestled in a dramatic, glossy shop next to the city’s main train station.

Colli says she was inspired by the history of baking and the simplicity of nature. The hexagon-topped tables are crafted in honeycomb shapes, while black chairs resemble the swirles of pretzels. Meanwhile, the mosaic of wood that covers a wall and mirror is a testament to the rosette-shaped bread of the 18th century.

A grand wooden hood capping the serving area is the shop’s focus, resembling a woven breadbasket. The warmth of soft oak contrasts a black polymer background, with a mirrored wall creating a kaleidoscope effect.
