I'll Be Right Back

Film and Fantasy Come Together in Torno Subito

Torno Subito, the newest addition to the renowned W Hotel brand upon the Palm Jumeirah Dubai, is a visual celebration for the celebrated, 3 star Michelin Holder Massimo Bottura. The chef known, for passion, creativity and even his quirky sense of style, saw a unique opportunity with this venture, in that he could recreate his childhood memories through intelligent design and an innovative food offering. Bishop Design's brief was to realize the sentiment of Massimo having fun. It was to be a metaphysical manifestation of beachside days reminiscent of Rimini's coastal playground of the 1950s and 60s.

Torno Subito means I'll be right back and is a sign often hung in shops and restaurants in Italy. The design is a modern throwback to Bottura's childhood holidays on the Italian Riviera during the 1960s. The interiors were to bring fantasy to life and transport you to destinations you couldn't possibly imagine through an utterly intoxicating reflection of Massimo's affection with the past. Film was to be an integral expression throughout as inspiration from Fellini films took precedent. The venue in its entirety was to be a beautiful fusion, bringing together the design, food and influences from the golden days into one harmonious offering, says Paul Bishop of Bishop Design, who designed the interior.
