Have a Swoopy, Colorless Meal in This Zaha-Designed Cafe

As construction on the Zaha Hadid-designed Opus Office Tower in Dubai continues to barrel ahead, brand new renderings reveal a futuristic, utterly-Zaha vertical cafe that's set to open in the mixed-use building's soaring atrium. Comprised of retail outlets, luxury apartments, and a fancy hotel called the ME Opus, the tower is uniform in the prolific starchitect's swooping, colorless hand, and the silvery, three-level cafe is no exception. Each piece of round, pillowy furniture was either personally designed or hand picked for the space, while the star-shaped undulating walls look a whole lot like her past hotel projects. The hotel and cafe will open in 2016, but until then, do take a look at the renderings, below:
