The meaning of Del Cambio

Art, memory, experimentation, elegance, and innovation: this is today’s Del Cambio. Historically authentic spaces and contemporary artistic works coexist, from Pistoletto’s mirror surfaces to Patkin’s complex visual metaphors. This world offers an experience that combines past and present, paying homage to Turin’s sensibility.

Michelangelo Pistoletto

For Del Cambio Michelangelo Pistoletto has designed the whole environment composed of 8 mirror surfaces whose title is "Evento". The characters portrayed in the mirror surfaces are ordinary people who observe an event that is not manifest and who ideally enter into communication with the audience present in the room; audience that becomes the dynamic element of the work itself.

Pablo Bronstein

A work of ambitious dimensions, commissioned for Bar Cavour, depicts the remains of an ideal city designed by Guarino Guarini. The vision of the palace-city creates a destabilizing atmosphere, an impossible relationship between inside and outside, a space-time and architectural journey that is consumed in a few meters.

Izhar Patkin

In collaboration with the famous French porcelain manufacturer of Sèvres, Patkin has created the unique project "Ruins for Del Cambio": 200 "discarded" plates from the factory because slightly defective were customized by hand by the artist with a reference to the name of the restaurant and its history. The central gold motif was made with traditional technique on an original model of the eighteenth century.

Arturo Herrera

The work that Herrera has imagined for Del Cambio is a wall painting that decorates the vault of Bar Cavour. Realized with the technique of the gold-plating, referring to the precious decorations of the noble hall on the ground floor, the work consists of abstract lines that give a strong dynamism to the spaces. The artist wanted to create a “total space” in strong dialogue with every element of Bar Cavour, be it the furniture or the people inside the room.

Martino Gamper

Gamper designed the tables and chairs for the "Sala Pistoletto". The armchairs with their clean and enveloping lines establish a stylistic continuity with the original decorations in the same radical modern details. The tables, composed of different cuts of wood in an alternation of precious and poor essences, contrast the clear lines of the top with the fluid lines of the legs.

The Kitchens of Del Cambio

Tailored designed and built entirely by hand by the prestigious French firm Matinox that together with Chef Matteo Baronetto have created today a cutting-edge work space that puts the strength of the materials and the attention to detail at the service of the contemporary kitchen.
