Belgian architect, Bernard Dubois, recently completed another collaboration with PNY, to design their latest Parisian outpost.

Working with rich colours, lacquered woods and heavy concrete he and his team created a bold scheme which champions some of today's most pioneering trends.

Take a quick tour of the project below.


The project consists of two separate spaces; a long restaurant which leads guests to the back of the venue, where they can encounter an impressive glass roof.

The first space evokes references to Californian mid-century design - think the Schindler house in Los Angeles - with plaster and concrete floors taking centre stage.

Rich burgundy shades are then layered throughout the design, adding a soft yet unique sense of depth.


Adding an element of intrigue - and referencing trends of late - tall arched lights stand above the restaurant's tables and chairs. Their silver, chrome finish contrasts the natural, matte styles used elsewhere.


From the entry door handle to the chrome lights aforementioned - everything in this project was designed and produced specially for the venue.

So, while visitors can find familiarity in a number of the design styles used, a trip to this eatery also offers an entirely unique design experience.
