Paris – Designer José Lévy has created the interior for Les Cloches brasserie in Saint Germain that forms a narrative encompassing visiting neighbours, tourists and friends.
The narrative comes in the form of a blend of traditional and modern Paris, achieved by incorporating local and tourist influences in the interior.
A black canopy is surrounded with neon lights, bare ceilings are covered with a layer of gold, overlapping wine glasses form the logo and transparent tableware sits on oak tables to create an eye-catching, treasure trove.
In keeping with the theme of conviviality, Lévy’s enlisted friends to help design the space. Elsie Obadia and Benjamin Moreau created the background music, Dan Amzallag designed the graphics and Stéphane Manel produced the menu illustrations.
Stores and restaurants are moving away from ostentatious spaces towards rough and ready ones that connect with their customers through the aesthetics. For more, read our Rough Luxe microtrend.
