Flavours and styling from Davide Oldani bring lively, sophisticated notes to the progressive form of QUATTRO. Each new update reveals the star chef’s spirit of culinary invention, as colours of the season flow through renewable artisanal resin. Italian cuisine is a parable for life: rich in variety and flavour, yet always open to new interpretation. Every sitting promises the possibility of something different.
Davide Oldani, inventor of POP Cuisine - high quality, priced reasonably - opened his restaurant D’O in 2003 in Cornaredo, outside Milan, his home town. After just a year in business, the most authoritative culinary guides included him among the great chefs of Italian cuisine. He has received many accolades, including a Michelin star in 2004, the City of Milan’s Ambrogino d’oro in 2008 and, in 2013, he was invited to speak at Harvard about his experience as an entrepreneur following publication of a case history about his restaurant in the Harvard Business Review.
In May of 2014, the Davide Oldani Cafè opened in the new Luxury Square shopping area at Milan’s Malpensa airport.
He has published several books, including Cuoco andata e ritorno (2008), Le D’Onne lo sanno (2018), Mangia come parli (Luglio 2020), and POP Food (2021) Feltrinelli paperback edition.
In 2016 he opened his new D’O, an evolved version of its predecessor in order to create a “bigger” cuisine, able to hold its own against other cuisines in Italy and abroad.
In November 2020, the Michelin Guide awarded him a second star for the year 2021 and the Michelin Green star, symbol of sustainability.
His activity as a designer, an offshoot of his skill as an attentive observer, reflects that of the chef himself: tables, chairs, dishes, flatware and glasses, inspired by POP: simple, functional, elegant.
“I love to blend the essential with the well-made; to bring innovation to tradition.” Davide Oldani is one of Italy’s most celebrated chefs, with a bold ‘Cucina POP’ style founded in surprise and reinvention.
Perfect preparation and refined presentation are hallmarks of the modern-minded QUATTRO. Limited to 100 pieces per season, organic textures blend with shaped steel and sapphire crystal to nourish the soul.
