In the heart of Paris, a stone’s throw from the Eiffel tower, Californian brasserie FRAME takes diners on a trip to the American West Coast.
For the décor, interior designer, architect and scenarist Christophe Pillet has created a lively and modern setting, as unique as it is timeless. FRAME was conceived to be an animated space that encourages gatherings with friends and family. Being an open space that merges with its exterior due to its glass walls, this Californian styled restaurant symbolises freedom as it brings a new dimension to the traditional Parisian brasserie.
“When one designs a restaurant, we must think of the story we want to tell to those who will visit it,” says Christophe. “The work of a designer is that of being a narrator, of telling a story to someone, and for this one to be understandable, it must be simple.”
For this Californian brasserie, the designer focused on a mineral décor inspired by nature. The predominant warm grey tones of the décor are contrasted with colourful pieces that bring it to life. Wood, marble and leather combined with patina and bronze add an enriching touch to this environment.
