Nokia's Spring Table at MOST

A pop-up restaurant for Nokia at Milan’s Salone del Mobile, set in a 15th Century monks’ dining room. Working with Nokia, this pop-up restaurant was created specifically for the monks’ dining room at the Milan Museum of Science and Technology, during the Salone del Mobile in 2012.

Nokia’s Spring Table at MOST

Beautiful 15th century frescoes were offset with custom-designed furniture, stamped using large machines that punch the chairs out of sheet galvanised steel. This was complemented with a menu from Dock Kitchen’s Stevie Parle, designed to reference the proximity of Milan’s famous food markets, seasonal produce, and the location of the monks’ dining room.
