THE SPECIAL POLYEDRIC AND MULTI-FACED METAL CEILING MADE BY ATENA FOR STARBUCKS MILAN
A few steps from Milan Cathedral in Piazza Cordusio, the doors of the first European Starbucks Roastery have been opened. An extraordinary work, symbol of the architecture of our age. The renovation of the building was carried out by the design manager Liz Muller who chose Atena S.p.A for metal ceilings realization.
In the location desired by Howard Schultz, where the coffee is the protagonist, above the impressive bar Atena metal ceilings stand out, giving a touch of modernity to the spirit of tradition: a tribute to the Espresso Italian culture.
“We are proud to have been part of this great project” – declares Mauro Barbuio, Owner of the company – “it was an exciting challenge, developed in every detail at the side of Starbucks technical management. We carried out both the manufacturing and the complete executive design of the ceiling system. From raw materials and finishing choice to the system development, in order to optimize installation stages ensuring the seismic ceiling safety; The system is made up of several island ceilings placed side by side, and even if the module pattern repeat themselves, the position changes and each island becomes a unique work.”
