Wes Anderson Designs a Cafè for Prada
The director decorates a Milanese retreat and it looks peculiarly familiar
Wes Anderson’s latest films share a storybook aesthetic that carries over to his latest project: designing a cafe for Fondazione Prada.
The result is a venue where bellhops of The Grand Budapest Hotel wouldn’t feel out of place. In a dull mint (pastels unsurprisingly dominate the room), Bar Luce is charming in a very specific way.
Formica tables and chairs litter the room while Steve Zissou and Castello Cavalcanti-themed pinball machines brighten up a wall. Kitsch, vintage and Anderson’s flat aesthetics is a delightful combination.
