Nestled in a charming Swiss village, rises the temple of "Alien"..After a small walk in this lovely place, more conducive to see frolicking the little "Heidi", just after a archway, we find ourselves in the Giger's fantastical universe, known worldwide as the "designer" Alien and other biomechanics creatures that have earned the "Oscar" in Hollywood.
HR Giger invites visitors to enter his magical, dreamlike and erotic world..
Some of this rooms are exclusively for adults... Opposite the museum is the mysterious atmosphere of the Giger Bar, the latest creation of the artist...In the 1960s and 1970s, Giger directed a number of films, including Swiss Made (1968), Tagtraum (1973), Giger's Necronomicon (1975) and Giger's Alien (1979)...
Giger has created furniture designs, particularly for a movie of the novel Dune that was to be directed by Alejandro Jodorowsky. Many years later, David Lynch directed the film, using only rough concepts by Giger.
Giger has applied his biomechanical style to interior design. One "Giger Bar" sprang up in Tokyo, but the realization of his designs were a great disappointment to the artist. For that reason, Giger disowned the Tokyo Giger Bar and never set foot in the place.
The two Giger Bars in his native Switzerland (in Gruyeres and Chur), however, were built under Giger's close personal supervision and reflect his original concepts for them accurately. At The Limelight in Manhattan, Giger's artwork was licensed to decorate the VIP room, the uppermost chapel of the landmarked church, but it was never intended to be a permanent installation and bore no similarity to the real Giger Bars in Switzerland.
The arrangement was terminated after two years when the Limelight closed its doors.
As of 2009 only the two authentic Swiss Giger Bars remain.
Movies: Dune. Alien (designed, among other things, the Alien itself, "The Derelict" and the "Space Jockey"). Aliens. Alien 3 (designed the dog-like Alien bodish)
