A new look  has been created for the bar and restaurant at the Plaza Athénée in Paris by the Jouin Manku design studio. Patrick Jouin and Sanjit Manku worked in a way similar to the great fashion designers by surrounding themselves with the most talented craftspeople to make every detail of the bar and restaurant a part of the vision.

The only element retained from the restaurant’s former design is the ceiling chandelier which is now reflected in the polished stainless steel domes on the floor.Best-interior-designers-top-interior-designer-Patrick-Jouin-1

These domes are an elegant twist on the traditional domed plate cover  made by ‘Meilleur Ouvrier de France’ – Matinox and Atelier Pierre-Yves Le Floc’h.


A striking timber alcove wraps itself around a single table and creates privacy. The outside of the alcove is in unfinished timber, made of strips of curved oak joined together in a shape similar to he hull of a fishing boat. Its inner surface of moulded plaster is finished with an imprint resembling the shape of a mushroom, taken from the restaurant’s old screens that were decorated with vegetables.
