After The Grand Budapest Hotel’s Oscar sweep this year, it’ll be a pity if you don’t know who Wes Anderson is. But don’t worry, we’ve got you covered: Think of an ice cream shop in a Sanjay Leela Bhansali film, remove all the grandeur and drama, and mix it with a handful of quirk.
Oh well, here’s how it looks, you non-creative, unimaginative, nice person:
From the Wired article:
Anderson—who’s collaborated with Prada before on commercials and the short filmCastello Cavalcanti, with Jason Schwartzman—says he designed Bar Luce to echo old-school Milanese cafés. Bar Luce, like any Anderson-made setting, is more of a composite homage to several parts of Milan: it’s like the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II shopping mall and an Italian neo-liberal film set all rolled into one. Part of that aesthetic came with the original architecture, like the arched ceilings that mimic the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II. Other details, like the perfectly centered schoolhouse clock, the retro jukebox, and the pinball machines are distinctly Andersonian.
