Paris – Home is where the heart is at a new restaurant in the French capital, giving diners the experience of being a guest at a friend’s dinner party.
Forgoing pretence and glamour, Derriere creates a familiar atmosphere: bookshelves are loaded with piles of books, a bed is in the middle of a room and a ping-pong table add to the feeling of being in someone’s home.
Depending on what mood diners are in, they can watch films in the movie room, or have cocktails in the boudoir. And should they enjoy themselves a bit too much and tiredness sets in, they can always have a quick nap on the bed.
Derriere is on rue des Gravilliers in Le Marais district, behind (Derriere means behind in French) Le 404 restaurant and Andy Wahloo cocktail bar.
Places such as Derriere aim to create an emotional experience with design that taps into our Rough Lux direction.
