Ital­ian take on an Amer­i­can clas­sic

The Irish Times - Thursday - Property - - Interiors -

The set­ting for a thou­sand movie scenes, the in­spi­ra­tion for work by some of the finest painters in the US and a great place to peo­ple watch, the Amer­i­can diner is hav­ing another mo­ment thanks to a pop-up col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween con­tem­po­rary de­sign ti­tle Sur­face mag­a­zine, ar­chi­tect David Rock­well with the Lab at Rock­well Group and graphic de­sign stu­dio 2x4, that cel­e­brated all that is good in this Amer­i­can icon’s her­itage at Mi­lan De­sign Week. The set-up reimag­ined clas­sic tropes such as neon sig­nage, bar light­ing and counter stools in a way most of us would like to have at home. The 14-me­tre long bar had a Dek­ton sur­face by Cosentino Group while the bar stool, Navy by Emeco, first de­signed for use on sub­marines, can be sourced to or­der from Min­ima. Price ¤999. For neon try Anony­mous on Fran­cis Street, Dublin. min­ima­home.com; emeco.net
