From the heart of Dalí

From the heart of Dalí

Philippe Starck has worked his magic on the restaurant’s distinctive interior, enhancing Dalí’s love of quirky design and distorting reality. Eye-catching additions include a monumental canvas designed by his daughter, Ara Starck, hanging under the restaurant’s glass dome and in perfect harmony with the surroundings.
