Following on the success of Bar and Club Design, Bethan Ryder now celebrates the most inspirational and beautiful restaurant spaces from around the world - places built to seduce diners and capture the imagination. After a brief introduction tracing the history of restaurant design, the book shows how restaurants can look like anything from a bedroom (such as Supperclub Roma) to the Arabian-style Nomads in Amsterdam or the futuristic Pod in Philadelphia. Provided there's somewhere to rest a plate, when it comes to inspiration the world is the restaurant designer's oyster. Internationally renowned designers featured include Christian Liaigre, David Rockwell, Philippe Starck, David Schefer, Jordan Mozer, Patrick Jouin and Karim Rashid. From the modern elegance of Craft in New York to the quirky decadence of London's Les Trois Garcons, this book features dining environments to suit every mood and every taste.
