What to see in Milan: Wes Anderson designed a Milan coffee shop


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 panelling that lines the walls, to the colourfully upholstered Formica furniture.

The pastel-heavy colour palette resonates with the aesthetic of Anderson’s films, which are heavily stylised. 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. The space already featured a vaulted ceiling, which Anderson chose to highlight using patterned wallpaper. The aim was to create a miniature version of Milan’s iconic Galleria Vittorio Emanuele shopping arcade.

More decorative wallpaper was added above the wooden wall panelling, recalling the windows and balconies of this famous building. Other details include a pink terrazzo floor speckled with flashes of red, grey and white, and two rows of spherical pendant lights.

The commission is the latest of several collaborations between Anderson and Prada, which include a series of movies for the launch of the fashion houses’s Candy L’Eau perfume, as well as the short film Castello Cavalcanti.
