The restaurant and lounge bar Ceresio 7, located in Via Lugano 7, opened its doors in September 2013 on the penthouse floor of the DSquared2 building in Milan, the former headquarters of Enel in the 1930's. The result of collaboration between the architects Storage, the interior designers Dimore Studio and designers Dean and Dan Caten, the restaurant combines a rationalist heritage and a vintage style, with a nod to the New York rooftops.

The restaurant, with two swimming pools, a spa and an advanced lighting system on the terrace, respects a symmetrical design, starting from the central oval table from which radiate two wings, which are defined by two pieces of furniture that contain the tables, embellished by brass inlays and black lacquered metal.

Retro lines and vintage items identify the choice of furniture, which includes pieces from all over the world like, for instance, the ceramics from the United States, the Asian sculptures, the tea set designed by Giò Ponti and the ancient art books.

Two large marble fireplaces, on opposite sides, define two distinct zones, a cigar room and the bar, the latter with an Armani marble top bar counter and processed brass edges.

The two rooms are furnished with leather seats, small paintings and swing arm lamps on the tables.
