Lynch designing Paris nightclub: "Club Silencio"

David Lynch aficionados will soon have a new temple to worship at. The cult auteur's latest project is designing a club in Paris. Club Silencio gets its name from the fictional establishment featured in Lynch's lauded 2001 movie Mulholland Drive. Lynch has designed the entire interior of the club, including some striking pieces of furniture. A surreal wooden-speaker stack seems to resemble a nightmarish appropriation of the face of a child's cuddly toy – the eyes being the two circular speaker cones. He's also designed several bespoke chairs and an asymmetrical double sofa, footstool and side- table combination.

Use this thread to collect bits and pieces of information and photos/videos and whatnot as it becomes available. I think it's a cool idea, and will be eager to visit if I ever can.

I wrote a brief article on the recent news of David Lynch's plans to construct a real-life entertainment complex in Paris, France patterned after Club Silencio from Mulholland Drive. And given the name of this website, I thought this would be the perfect place to share a link to it:

An exclusive clip of the fabulous Anne Pigalle performing to a packed house at David Lynch’s Parisian night club Silencio, where she sang a selection of songs from her recent album, L’ Ame Erotique, and a some of her classic early work. Ms. Pigalle was performing at a special event, created by Diane Pernet, to celebrate the international Festival A Shaded View on Film Festival.

Music is not my cup of tea, but interesting to see, all the same.
