Milan’s rawest yet most refined restaurant, Carlo e Camilla in Segheria, is located in a former 1930s sawmill (segheria is Italian for sawmill). The space, designed by Tanja Solci, has been left mostly untouched; the glamour comes from a suite of vintage cut-crystal chandeliers, fanciful dinnerware by Richard Ginori, and starkly modern dining chairs from Cappellini.
