Miss Kō Restaurente – By Philippe Starck

‘It is a place of freedom, humour, creativity, art, friendliness, openness. Miss Kō is a breath of madness, it’s truly insane. A street out of Blade Runner: a cement parking-garage wall with Formica chairs, TV screens that spew out hundreds of images of live news coverage from Asia, a kitchen that smokes and smoulders.” Philippe Starck

Philippe Starck’s latest project located in the epicenter of Paris’ Golden triangle, which is a collaboration with restaurateur Claude Louzon is a take on a bustling Asian street. Miss Kō is the imaginary experience of a female heroine, a multi-sensorial stimulation that at times seems like a dream that has swallowed you whole and claims you as its own even after you wake up from it.

Inside, this neo-Asian experience unfolds through different channels. Whether it is body art, the featured dragon, media, rice or lighting; they have all taken a protagonist role in the experiential planning that has led to Miss Kō. At the bar, endless layer of screens displays different Asian channels overlaid by an intricate illustration of a dragon by Label Dalbin.

”Miss Kō is a fantastic project that gives me license to prepare dishes with diverse tastes that are simultaneously mild, more intense, and more aromatic. It’s truly a flavour clash. It is absolutely essential for me to make the Miss Kō restaurant the gold standard in culinary renewal.” Chef Fabrice Monot
