GranGusto is a multi-function place of about 2000 square metres dedicated to food and based on the excellence of the Campania territory.
It is a versatile place, where you can taste a lot of products and decide if you want to buy them, according to the latest trends in the food world. The fusion of purchase and taste is recurrent: the layout suggests a thematic path along with some specific corners (bakery, meat, fish, delicatessen, cheese and wine) where sometimes tasting events take place. On the ground floor, there is a café, directly in touch with the territory.
Different and many materials and techniques have been used – DuPont™ Corian®, oak and fir wood, metal and glass. Every single piece is custom: an example is given by the lamps in textile with the function of sound-absorption, that you can see in the wine corner. The ensemble is completed by Billiani chairs and seats.
