Gong owes its name to the imposing, decorative onyx gongs that dominate the room, decorative and discreet at the same time. Architect Nisi Magnoni, along with architect Davide Galletta, wanted a bare, unadorned space, as called for by Asian tradition, enriched only by details in gold and brass repeated on the tables, lamps and doors. The open space and high ceilings lend themselves to conviviality. They give the whole restaurant a modern, relaxed feeling. The large gongs, illuminated in the evening like works of art, glow for passersby through picture windows. Guests can see into the up-to-date kitchen as it tells its story of care and precision through the expert gestures of the chef and his team.
