Das Loft Restaurant at the Sofitel Hotel in Viena by Jean Nouvel and Pipilotti Rist – A Vibrant Restaurant with Breathtaking Views in an Artistic City

This is most definitely the restaurant for you if you love stunning breathtaking views, bright vibrant colour and incredible food within a fine dining setting. I think the hypnotic kaleidoscope of colour in the artwork is truly beautiful and it complements the otherwise modern monochrome design perfectly. There is an accent of every warm colour here…

Das Loft Restaurant at the Sofitel Hotel in Viena by Jean Nouvel and Pipilotti Rist

The Sofitel Vienna Stephansdom hotel was designed by French architect Jean Nouvel. A five-storey section stands next to the 18 storey main building; the smaller section with sloping roof stands in front of the facade, and houses the lobby, entrance and reception area. The top floor of the hotel is home the Das Loft restaurant, comprising of glazed walls on all sides and a very vibrant, brightly patterned ceiling that can be clearly viewed from the street outside as it is so beautifully bright. The eye-catching patterned video panels in ceilings feature work are by the Swiss artist Pipilotti Rist.

With such a breathtaking setting on the 18th floor, Das Loft restaurant is one of the leading dining destinations in the city of Viena. Beautiful hypnotic kaleidoscopic colours dance across the spectacular 21,500-square-foot illuminated ceiling of the restaurant, while floor-to-ceiling glass windows frame stunning views of Vienna’s iconic St. Stephen’s Cathedral, the Danube river and the beautiful historic Vienna city skyline.

An Award-winning chef Fabian Günzel will take you on an exciting culinary journey to be remembered forever, inspired by the diverse flavours and taste from around the world, accompanied by an excellent wine list to complement it. And it would appear that the dessert table complements the artwork…

A Stunning Vibrant Interior with Breathtaking Views

The modern monochrome space is lifted by the sky of almost moving colour that lives above the restaurant. The hard edges of the quite dark masculine interior decor is really softened by the ceiling artwork and the floor to ceiling glass that almost blends the interior into the view of the city scape.

The beautiful ceiling, like the sky outside, floats above the city of dark interior furnishings; just as the real sky floats above the real city outside. And the crisp amber autumn leaves transport you to a Viena tree lined park on a sunny autumn day. And the the heated amber colour and bright tones of blue bring a strong warmth to the dark monochrome interior below.

Vibrant colour is something that is most definitely highly popular in the very artistic city of Viena, Austria… And the Das Loft Restaurant most definitely lives up to the cities artistic expectations… Especially with the artist Pipilotti Rist’s artistic ceiling design that is just a stunning kaleidoscope of hypnotic vibrant colour that dances across the restaurant ceiling. How could you not feel happy in at place like this…
