Im a huge fan of bold design. I love the way it changes a persons perspective forcing them to see things in a different light.

This design for L’Opera Restaurant in Paris is so bold it seems more like a digital rendering than an actual photograph. French architect Odile Decq, completed a design that is truly the definition of unlikely extravagance.

When picturing a restaurant in a building with such classic architecture, one would presume something that favors the vintage styles of 19th century paris. Not something so modern that is stands out like a sore thumb but strangely in a good way.

The restaurant, located in the 1,600-seat L’Opéra Garnier, was a 6 million Euro (about $8.2 million US), three-year-long project that was completed this summer.
