Partnership
To celebrate its 25th anniversary, Surface is teaming up with celebrated architect David Rockwell to explore American design now by recasting a U.S. icon. Aptly called The Diner, the experience will take place at Ventura Centrale during the Salone del Mobile design and furniture fair and will offer a coast-to-coast journey through the United States. Four distinct environments—the Roadside Diner, the East Coast Luncheonette, the Midwest Diner, and the West Coast Diner—will riff on aesthetic ideas from around the country with a modern twist. Rockwell’s vision will be enhanced by emerging and established U.S.-based designers, including the distinguished design consultancy 2×4, which is creating a comprehensive visual identity for the project. During the day, The Diner will offer a contemporary take on quintessentially American food and drink, and feature a conversation series and other programming; at night, the space will transform into a nightclub featuring performances and parties. Located at Ventura Centrale, The Diner will be a major attraction in Milan: a place where strangers become a community.

 

View The Diner Media Kit, host your event at the space during the furniture fair, or partner with us on this landmark project. For all press inquires, please contact David Hoffman, david@jacobperes.com
