Chaotic, fragmented and vibrant, Philippe Starck’s take on Asian fusion is a crazy blend of cultures and colours. In the futuristic design, technology comes to the fore – the surface of the 26 metre long table is constructed from screens looping news channels from all over Asia, while scattered grains of rice are projected onto the walls. Combined with psychedelic wallpaper and eclectic lighting, the effect is of entering a world somewhere between Bladerunner and Alice and Wonderland. The concept revolves around the fictional Miss Ko – a faceless character covered in Yakuza-style full body tattoos that symbolise the junction of the modernity and traditions of Asia, as designed by Horikitsune and photographed By Uli Weber. Her form links the graphic design with the interior, giving the insanity of the space a strong sense of narrative. More at Designboom.

With a slick monochromatic palette and backstreet location, Michigan’s CVLT Pizza has some cool credentials. The mix of retro game machines, half-peeled graphic wall paper and pared-back design create an environment radically different from the classic pizza joint formula. Bonus points for the striking logo and graphic design. See more images at Retail Design Blog.
