I enjoy pulling inspiration from all kinds of different design styles. This is a new restaurant inside the Vdara hotel in Las Vegas. It's called Silk Road and it was designed by Karim Rasid. The Contemporist posted Karim's comments about the space as well a ton of photographs. It's Vegas so it is a little on the crazy side but well worth a look. The wife and I had the opportunity to listen to him speak and meet him at an event in Detroit a few years back. He was collaborating with Jenn Air on some kitchen design. He was super engaging and had a ton of creative energy. I can appreciate his sense of architecture and how it relates to space. Inspiring.
