We are all familiar with the brilliance that is Wes Anderson. The beloved American film-maker has become a household name due to his unique narrative-style and distinctive visual aesthetics.
Back in 2015, the director turned his attention to the world of design when he decided to create a bar inspired by some of his most iconic films. The bar, called Bar Luce, is located in Milan and it’s as stunning as you would imagine. Check it out below.
Milan’s Bar Luce was designed by Wes Anderson back in 2015 and it’s like stepping into a real-life world of one of his films. Check it out below.
Bar Luce is located in one of Milan’s most fashionable multidisciplinary arts centres and draws upon different aspects of Anderson’s films that have become synonymous with his style and visual mark.
In particular, the bar mimics the visual components derived from an Italian art movement during the 1950s and 1960s – the big arched ceilings and decorated walls typical of classical Italian buildings, echoing the aesthetics of his short film Castello Cavalcanti, which was released in 2013.
“The approach I used to design this bar is exactly the opposite I usually use for the set designs of my movies,” Anderson has described of the bar. “I tried to make it a bar you’d like to go to five times a week. A space for real life with numerous good spots for eating, drinking, talking and reading.”
Check out more pictures of the bar below, and be sure to stay tuned for the release of Anderson’s 10th feature film, The French Dispatch, which is set to be released in July this year.
