Canteen Nuvola Lavazza

Enjoying peace and quiet in the "Cloud"

The entire neighbourhood is welcome in the canteen of the Turin ­coffee producer Lavazza in the Aurora district. With its clear design, the dining area retains the industrial character of the building, which was once a power station. White glazed genuine timber panels in ­silver fir placed on the ceilings create a homely atmosphere. Together with the unobtrusive furniture, they form a calm and quiet setting for relaxed work breaks.
