Sophies at Saks Fifth Avenue Chicago

Design: Andre Kikoski Architect

Location: Fifth Avenue, Chicago, Illinois, USA

Andre Kikoski Architect just completed the restaurant, Sophie’s at Saks Fifth Avenue in Chicago, inspired by Sophie Gimbel, the iconic fashion designer and arbiter of American style at Saks for 40 years.

Sophies At Saks Fifth Avenue

Continuing with the latest trend in clothing retailers and high-end department stores opening on-site restaurants – Sophie’s at Saks is seamlessly integrated within the new men’s store, The Fifth Avenue Man, and delivers a unique fusion of architecture, fashion and food by translating the innovation, luxury, and cool that is the core of both Sophie Gimbel and Saks Fifth Avenue into an elegant and chic dining venue.

Designed in Saks’ signature black and white, with shimmering accents, Kikoski’s solution references Sophie’s distinctive aesthetic, drawing on flowing forms, rich patterning and nuanced textures. The dining room, a comfortable loft-like aerie, is perched on the seventh floor overlooking Michigan Avenue. It’s stunning panoramic views of the Magnificent Mile are a focal point of the room and an elegant counterpoint to the private dining room which is screened by cascading rippled glass and sumptuously appointed with vintage velvet, white silk and gold leaf.

The space features contemporary materials with cutting-edge technology, including a wall of digitally-engineered optical glass, 3D geometric carpet, custom American walnut millwork with mirror-polished metal accents, a luminous bar top of recycled cast glass, and walls upholstered with rich fabrics — all layered with furniture by Christian Liaigre, Ligne Roset, and Poltrona Frau, as well as custom pieces by Andre Kikoski Architect, which include Swarovski lighting fixtures, commissioned by Nadia Swarovski to rethink the traditional crystal chandelier.
