Taking influences from the local 1970’s architecture and where British eccentricity meets Parisienne chic, the Eclectic Restaurant by Fabienne and Philippe Amzalak and Jean-Louis Costes is situated in Paris’ newest retail experience, Beaugranelle, on the banks of the river Seine in the shadow of the Eiffel Tower.
On the back of our ongoing work with Tom Dixon Design Research Studio on the Mondrian London project and utilising our wealth of experience in lighting we were commissioned by Tom Dixon Design Research Studio to produce numerous acoustic lighting features and collaborate with the team to make a stunning centrepiece chandelier for this exciting design led restaurant project.
The 3.5m central chandelier is undoubtedly the focal point of the restaurant. 124 gold Tom Dixon cell pendants are suspended from a black, powder coated steel frame for ultimate visual impact, orbited by a series of 10 grey flocked acoustic panels of varying sizes hanging from the open plan ceiling. These noise reducing acoustic foam panels are custom made in keeping with the wider interior scheme and feature LED uplighters with a select number of the panels featuring the same gold cell pendants as the main centrepiece fitting.
Director Will Chelsom said, “We are incredibly proud to have been commissioned by Maison & Objet’s Desginer of the Year 2014, Tom Dixon, to be part of yet another fantastic high profile commission such as the Eclectic Restaurant. The team at Tom Dixon Design Research Studio have an ingenious capabilities when it comes to creating high concept interior schemes and large scale installations resulting in a fantastic client portfolio to show for it and we look forward to our continuing partnership with them as fellow lighting specialists”.
