The Potafiori flower bistro in Milan


If you like conceptual and particular environments, then I’m sure that you’ll love the Potafiori flower bistro.

The project was created from a vision of Rosalba Piccinni, the owner who is passionate about flowers and music. With Potafiori, she invented a new way of spending time together: a flower shop with a kitchen, and from this insight Potafiori was made.

The concept is to go to Potafiori to buy flowers, and while you are waiting for your bouquet to be prepared, you can enjoy good food and music.

But it could even be the other way around, too… why not? What do you think about it?

The idea, in my opinion, is very original and attractive.

The place conveys the originality and uniqueness of her initial idea. It is a very interesting design that was realised for her by the Storage studio.

The project design focused on recreating the original beauty of an early 20th century building, consciously wanting to bring to light the raw materials of the structure. 

The design project was then enhanced by adding chic and contemporary metal elements and structures.

The shop is located in the heart of the Bocconi university district in Milan and is open every day until late evening.

What do you think about it? Do you like its concept and the interior design? Is there anything that particularly struck you?
