While we’re still waiting to hear what movie Wes Anderson will gear up next, the filmmaker has taken some time to bring his fussy eye for detail to the design of Bar Luce, a new café in Milan, Italy. And if you ever wanted to step onto the set of a Wes Anderson movie, and maybe have a cake from Mendl’s, this is as close as you’re going to get.
“…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,” the director said about his formica, wood-panelled, ’50s/’60s designers wet dream. And it does look like a pretty great place to hang out, if only to play “The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou” pinball machine.
