The Pink Zebra pays homage to Wes Anderson

Writer

Designed by Renasa studio in New Delhi, The Pink Zebra restaurant pays homage to the surreal vein of the Oscar-winning American director Wes Anderson.

Are you in love with the surreal vein of the American film director Wes Anderson and with his colourful style expressed in movies like The Royal Tenenbaums, The Darjeeling Limited, The Grand Budapest Hotel and the most recent Isle of Dogs? Well, if this is so, this restaurant is the right place for you.

It is called The Pink Zebra and it is located in Kanpur in northeastern India. It is located in one of the oldest buildings in the city, on two levels. It consists of a lounge with a bar counter, a dining area and a covered terrace which offers a broad view of the city. Having Wes Anderson as inspiration, it is not surprising that the place is aesthetically extravagant: The bubble-gum pink interacts with the zebra effect present in every room playing with the sun’s rays. The total restaurant area, including the terrace, is about 4,000 square feet (370 Square metres).

Renata studio from New Delhi and great fans of the well-known Texan film director curated the project. The result is a combination of pastel pink mixed with the city’s colonial British Raj history that gives life to a retro kitschy-chic, halfway between modern and colonial style, ornate and structured.
