Wood fired pizza is absolutely a cut above the 30 minutes or less variety that usually gets delivered to your door, and it’s pretty common for restaurants that employ the process to make the massive, rustic ovens the visual centrepiece of the room, so folks dining in can see their food emerge. Vienna based creative collective Madame Mohr took a different aesthetic direction for a local pizzeria, turning the oversized kiln into a groovy disco ball that spins around!
The rest of the décor in Disco Volante—translated literally as “flying disc,” and also the name of Thunderball villain Emilio Largo’s hydrofoil yacht—is minimal and clean lined, making the massive mirrored glass orb even more of an eye catching attraction.
The structure is made from heat resistant concrete, and once the dough is loaded in, the whole thing turns at about a revolution per minute (no word on whether the joint’s soundtrack is equally retro). Here’s hoping that whoever has to polish the 7,500 reflective tiles gets paid overtime. [Ignant]
