Andre Fu Studio collaborated with celebrated chef Antimo Maria Merone to create Estro (Italian for ‘inspiration’), dedicated to elevating Neapolitan cuisine, presenting inspired, wholly original and deeply personal dishes with impeccable style. “My vision is to create a visual journey that aligns with the chef’s culinary philosophy. Eschewing clichés, it offers a personal interpretation of Italian history whilst striking a balance between the artful and the avant-garde. It is an cinematic dreamscape that evokes an abstract re-telling in the manner of Jean Cocteau and Gio Ponti,” says André.
the dining experience conceived by André Fu Studio evokes a sense of enchantment, transporting guests into reimagined vignettes of Italy. The interior draws inspiration from Antimo’s homeland, encapsulating the colours, character and styling of a luxury salotto in Napoli’s old town. Decadent in its detailing, the space invites guests to retreat from the bustling, urban streets of Hong Kong’s Central and escape to a poetic environment of bespoke old world aesthetics. Inspired by the essence of Italy, Andre Fu Studio delivers a nuanced and immersive vision of Napoli into Hong Kong’s vibrant city, welcoming Estro’s guests to an enamouring spatial experience.
