Hotel Intercontinental Genève restaurant Les Continents

Title

Hotel Intercontinental Genève restaurant Les Continents

Description

For Les Continents Restaurant, where diners could feast on their choice of Tahitian boula boula, Chilean crevettes à la diable, and a wealth of other creations both exotic and familiar, Prince created room dividers with murals featuring each of the five continents– five instead of seven, because as a famous Pan-Am ad from the 1960s went, polar caps were the only places it didn’t fly.

Architecture by by Georges Addor and Domenica Julliard.
