Wes Anderson has designed a bar for Prada and here are the results
For the new Prada Fondazione
Wes Anderson has designed a bar for Prada's new Fondazione, drawing inspiration from Milanese cafes. The Grand Budapest Hotel director has called it Bar Luce, and it features all of the kitschy elements one might expect from an Anderson project – including a vintage formica table, jukebox and arcade games.
Housed within the new Rem Koolhas-designed Fondazione Prada in Milan, Italy, Anderson revealed that the new bar was also inspired by two Italian Neorealism films: 1951's Miracolo a Milano and 1960's Rocco E I Suoi Fratelli. And who know, perhaps the iconic filmmaker will end up penning another box office hit at Bar Luce as he reveals: "I think it would be an even better place to write a movie," Anderson says. "I tried to make it a bar I would want to spend my own non-fictional afternoons in."
