For all film lovers of British director Christopher Nolan and, in particular, of Interstellar, in the city center of Mexico City, at Citibanamex, a world-class congress and exhibition center, a temporary restaurant has been created on the theme of the film. Designed by Almazán y Arquitectos Asociados in collaboration with Concepto Taller de Arquitectura and Pin Studio, the restaurant is based on the science fiction film released in cinemas in 2014.
Inspired by the plot of the feature film, the 200-square-meter restaurant offers a starry sky made up of 250,000 LED lights that seem to literally let you into an illuminated galaxy. Below there are all the tables where you can sit and eat. At the entrance, there is the library, the same that Murphy in her bedroom observes noting an abnormal fall of his books.
Stimulated by otherworldly places and the captivating mystery of distant and unknown planets, the main objective of the design teams was to “transform the universe into content, interweaving time and space to create a visually spectacular environment”.
Guests can experience the otherworldly theme by totally immersing themselves in the film. Some of the books are suspended from the ceiling giving the impression of anti-gravity. Elegantly furnished, the restaurant was created as part of Millesime Mexico 2019, an interactive haute cuisine event that has been held annually in the convention center since 2007.
