DINE UNDER THE OCEAN
It took 18 months to build but finally Under, Europe’s first under-the-ocean restaurant, is open to the public, a couple of weeks ahead of schedule. A restaurant five and a half meters below the surface in Norway, exposing you to the wonders beneath the sea.
With this museum, Karl Fournier and Olivier Marty will be among those architects whose names we remember,” wrote Yves Saint Laurent’s late partner in business and life, Pierre Bergé, of the firm’s soon-to-open Musée Yves Saint Laurent in Marrakech. Bergé’s foreword rings especially true throughout the ensuing pages of Rizzoli’s forthcoming Studio KO, a monograph dedicated to the Paris-based firm’s 18 years of practice in France, Morocco, England, and beyond. The book, whose large-format photographs bear first-hand witness to the firm’s singular ability to create a modern style that feels both sumptuous and minimalist, launches October 11, just in advance of the museum's opening, later this month. A particularly special part of the book is its sweeping look into Studio KO’s residential oeuvre, a collection of materially sophisticated homes nestled into idyllic landscapes around the world.
