Market, Atlanta, GA 2008 by Karim Rashid

Jean-Georges's Market defines twenty-first century dining. Set off W Buckhead, Market serves an international array of Jean -Georges's greatest dishes. Diners from the accompanying hotel and Atlanta area are treated to an informal dining room that feeds the social energy of the community. The Market is casual but artistic, sensual but not mechanical; it is both local and global. The main dining room is an amorphous space with continuous, undulating bamboo walls and a curving clear blue glass balustrade. Above hangs a chandelier of mirrored Murano glass. Organic shape cut-outs in the walls are lit to look like infinite recess'. The subtly reflective ceiling creates dynamic movement above diners. The towering façade's ovular entrance offers a seamlessly cropped view out into the new world. Market proves food and design are the two greatest connectors in our contemporary society.Client: Jean-Georges Culinary Concepts
