In the bar area there is a fireplace surrounded by Soviet armchairs and Tulip tables by Eero Saarinen.
Here, there are two artworks – Cappa per caminetto (1949) and Testa di medusa (1948-54) – by Lucio Fontana, while the polychrome ceramic Pilastro (1947) by the same artist introduces the restaurant.
The restaurant area, which has 84 seats, is arranged on three levels slightly staggered from each other to recreate an ideal viewpoint.
The first two are furnished with wooden tables and Executive chairs by Eero Saarinen and present a selection of paintings and photographs by Thomas Demand, Jeff Koons, Goshka Macuga and John Wesley. The top level houses original furnishings from the Four Seasons Restaurant in New York designed by Philip Johnson in 1958 and elements from Carsten Höller's installation The Double Club (2008-2009).
Inspired by the Italian restaurant tradition, the walls feature artist dishes created for the Torre restaurant by John Baldessari, Thomas Demand, Nathalie Djurberg & Hans Berg, Elmgreen & Dragset, Joep Van Lieshout, Goshka Macuga, Mariko Mori, Tobias Rehberger, Andreas Slominski, Francesco Vezzoli and John Wesley, part of a series open to new contributions.
