BAR LUCE BY WES ANDERSON

INGRIDESIGN @ wes andesron's bar luce milano

When I heard that film director Wes Anderson (famous for indie films such as The Royal Tenenbaums, The Darjeeling Limited, Moonrise Kingdom to name a few) had designed the interior of Bar Luce at the Fondazione Prada I had to go and check it out.

Anderson has re-created the atmosphere of a typical Milanese cafè with a 1950s style full of pastel colours and quirky details, the perfect place for a drink and a bite to eat while you pretend that you’re in your favourite Wes Anderson film..

The bar-staff is all dressed as they have stepped out of The Grand Budapest Hotel, I kept looking for the lobby boy but he was unfortunately not around. As it was a very hot and sunny day I had a classic spritz, which I enjoyed while observing the big crowd – a mix of hipsters and Italian families on a day out.

It has a ‘The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou’ and a ‘Castello Cavalcanti’ pinball machine alongside a cool retro jukebox, a counter full of candy, cakes, food and drinks, and the most extravagance entrance to a WC I have ever seen.

“There is no ideal angle for this space. It is for real life, and ought to have numerous good spots for eating, drinking, talking, reading, etc. While I do think it would make a pretty good movie set, I think it would be an even better place to write a movie. I tried to make it a bar I would want to spend my own non-fictional afternoons in.” – Wes Anderson

Spent this Saturday snapping away at the Salone Del Mobile exhibition in Milan, a showcase for the latest in furnishing and design. It was a massive exhibition space, so having the map at hand was a must.

So much inspiration & great design in one day, here are some of my highlights (but be warned – it’s a lot of yellow!) :

LITTLE BISHOP

I discovered this ceiling hook online and think it’s a very clever and nifty idea. The Little Bishop is designed specifically for cable hung pendant lights, and the clean simple style is perfect for any modern home. It was made by Antony Richards from Melbourne, Australia, and started as a project on Kickstarter. Now the hook is going into production, and is available for pre orders here.

“Let’s make places. Let’s make them extraordinary. Let’s make them full of life and lust, delight and wonder. Let’s make them daring and unusual. Foolish and spectacular. Different and amazing. Let’s make them original. Let’s make them us. Let’s make the places where we love to live.” – Bolia

Had a little browse around at Bolia yesterday and found quite a lot of great items, both new and old. This Landscape Daybed for instance is so lovely with it’s clean and simple lines, perfect for daydreaming or a little snooze. The backrest is designed to look like a mountain top, and gives a nice Scandinavian feel to any space. Pair it with this cool Orla Wall lamp for a match made in heaven.
