Another day, another Karl Lagerfeld-designed project. Just don't accuse him of spreading himself too thin.

His latest venture is a hotel redesign, which includes reimagining the Hotel Métropole Monte-Carlo's outside areas, and creating "an artistic setting" for the hotel's Joël Robuchon restaurant, according to WWD. For Karl, that means creating a fresco-style installation comprised of 15 etched and backlit glass panels depicting Ulysses’ journey, obvs.

So what does Ulysses’ journey look like through the eye of Karl's imagination? It's black-and-white, super sleek, and filled with great accessories (seriously, loving those bangles). Oh and is that Baptiste Giabiconi, we see?

Happily, this isn't the only large-scale Lagerfeld project we can look forward to. The designer has apparently been tapped as scenographer for the next Biennale des Antiquaires, scheduled for Sept. 14 to 23 in Paris at the Grand Palais, where Lagerfeld frequently stages his elaborate runway shows for Chanel. Needless to say, we'll be expecting something as extravagant and OTT as the desigenr himself.
