This Summer, Milan got a whole lot more things to be seen! Wes Anderson coffee shop LUCE opened its kitschy doors in the new PRADA’s culture complex! What to see in Milan? Give yourself an extraordinary experience.
Filmmaker Wes Anderson has ventured into interior design, with a bar intended to recreate the atmosphere of Milanese cafes inside the OMA-designed Fondazione Prada in Milan. Wes Anderson, best known for films including The Life Aquatic and The Grand Budapest Hotel, was invited by Prada to create the main dining space inside its new arts centre, which occupies a converted distillery in Largo Isarco, southern Milan.
Named Bar Luce, the space takes references from famous Milanese landmarks and cafes dotted around the city, particularly those dating back to the 1950s and 60s. These influences are visible in various details, colours and finishes – from the veneered wooden paneling that lines the walls, to the colorfully upholstered Formica furniture.
The pastel-heavy colour palette resonates with the aesthetic of Anderson’s films, which are heavily stylized. But while many of the films favour symmetry in their composition, the director said there are no ideal angles from which to appreciate this space.
