Ramses Restaurant, Madrid by Philippe Starck

One of my favorite designers is without any question Philippe Starck. Theatre, hyperbole, drama, hidden messages, philosophy, poetry and amazing aesthetics, his work and strong style have become easily recognizable even by those not familiar with the field of design. Above are images of projects which are to my taste some of the most successful ones. Although I am not the biggest fan of his product design, (the furniture would be certainly an exception), I think he is one of the best designers for commercial interiors. This first series is of a more recent project in Madrid: Ramses Restaurant. I love the industrial edge of the project, something we have seen a lot over the past years in projects such as the Shoreditch House and especially the writing of the wall, an element Starck has been applying a lot in his restaurant and hotel designs.
