For the restyling of the Caffè San Carlo, lamatilde decided to opt for a discreet and non-invasive approach, maintaining the elegance and the classic identity of the venue while starting a dialogue with contemporary processes and materials.


The hero element of the main room is the central peninsula counter, made of oak with a ribbed relief finish – an echo of the motif on the original decorative pilasters – and topped with smooth Emperador Dark marble.


The central position of the counter is further enhanced by its relationship with the original, sumptuous chandelier and with the two red velvet sofas with high backrests, which pay homage to the typical style of 19th-century armchairs.


The displays behind the counter feature a metal frame structure with built-in lighting, designed and produced in collaboration with OliveLab, and follow the rhythm of the original architectural elements.


To maintain a cohesive style, coherent with the original one, lamatilde chose furniture by Midj: Lea sofas and armchairs upholstered in red velvet, and Smart tables with a top that resembles the dark marble of the counter.
