THANK YOU FOR YOUR REQUEST
We will be in touch soon.
India Mahdavi’s interior design studio develops through her creations a certain vision of happiness and color, which she never ceases to sustain. Today we’re proud to present you with India Mahdavi’s incredible interior design hospitality and contract projects.
India Mahdavi has conceived many places, bars, restaurants, retail concepts, clubs, and hotels from the hotel du Cloitre in arles or Monte Carlo beach hotel in Monaco, to the gallery at the sketch in London or ladurée in Los Angeles and Tokyo. An architect and designer, she imposes herself on the contemporary scene in a singular, eclectic, and nomadic manner, celebrating an oriental pop in the west.
In 2003, she launches her first furniture collection and inaugurates her showroom at 3 rue las cases. In 2011, she opens her ‘petits objets’ boutique at 19 Rue Las Cases, as a place to promote a range of crafts and ancestral techniques as well as her signature color palette.
In 2020, she opens the third space at 29 rue de belle chasse (at the end of the rue las cases) which is halfway between a window and a gallery. Unique pieces, limited editions, cartes blanches, exclusive collaborations… the program will evolve with the space, crossing lines and perspectives — in a tribute to craftsmanship.
‘How does one approach the conception of a restaurant in an airport, where people pass for an instant amidst the relentless tide of travel?’ India Mahdavi tackles this issue by creating a setting that conveys the impression of still being in Paris, whilst looking out over the runway to the aircraft procession. Ensuing this collaboration with the starred chef guy martin (Le Grand Véfour, Palais Royale, Paris), emerged a warm, delicate and epicurean interlude at the heart of terminal 2e, and was hence presented with the best airport restaurant in the world award (fab awards 2016). I love Paris is a ‘love story dedicated to travelers’ in which the armchairs are enticing, and the space devotes itself to the contrasting materials.
In collaboration with Thierry Costes, India Mahdavi reveals her first public project in Paris. The Germain opened its doors to the public in May of 2009 – it revives the Parisian bistro creatively and recreationally with a pixelated floor, composed of black and white cement tiles, and a graphically illuminated ceiling. Anis green and orange tones float around Sophie, a 5-meter yellow metal statue by Xavier Veilhan. ‘I wanted this place to have a history and a tradition but also to be able to free itself from it. I deconstructed the space by experimenting with scale, proportions and patterns.’ affirms India Mahdavi.
«Chez Nina» is a very special club, a unique atmosphere that adds color to the night. Named after Nina Yashar, founder of Nilufar Gallery, this exclusive club has been designed by India Mahdavi, as a celebration of Nina’s and India’s complicity. The colored velvet banquettes and the acid candy stained glass tables have been designed especially for the space and stand in contrast to the silk geometric landscape mural produced by french home tailors, De Gournay. A selection of lights and furniture pieces from Nina’s collection adds a layer of sophistication — Gio Ponti armchairs, Martino Gamper’s poufs, Lelli’s floor lamp… A new experience in Milan.
It’s the story of an XXI century Marie-Antoinette who drags us into an oneiric experience in her ‘garden of delights. The wicker armchairs, meringue-based tables, and omnipresent latticework contribute to the conception of a delight.
‘A sensorial and ultra-contemporary voyage, a universe of freshness’, declares India Mahdavi about this project carried out in three cities. A sweet garden that celebrates the mix of the french groves and ‘Gourmandise’.
‘I work on the idea of happiness and ‘Gourmandise’, dear to ladurée, intimately laced with this notion of pleasure’. India Mahdavi defined a language, a three-dimensional new identity, which resumes the notion of the garden with a lattice, a pastel color palette that alludes to macarons, and a checkered floor that evokes a winter garden.
With benched seating lining the walls and tailored ‘charlotte’ armchairs, India Mahdavi has infused the space in an extravagant Hollywood pink to revive the classic brasserie whilst remaining faithful to sketch’s avant-garde philosophy. ‘my first desire was to paint it all pink and to stage the customer as if he were part of a film. The pink contrasted with the radicality of the room. In this masculine atmosphere, India Mahdavi’s had to assert myself in front of this cubic room and introduce my vision: that of color and gentleness.’
A beautiful and modern hotel featuring some neutral tones combined with warm shades on furniture. This hotel brings to life the concept of simplicity and timeless design.
Created for Jean-Francois Piège, the Thoumieux was conceived like a private dining room, as a sort of portrait of the starred chef. It’s a hedonistic and joyful place in which the atmosphere is reminiscent of Chabrol’s or Sautet’s films. India Mahdavi and m/m (Paris) have collaborated to instill the warm atmosphere of a country house in the city. ‘I was seeking a balance in between colors, warm and cold materials, masculine and feminine. Styles mingle, collecting in the forties, fifties, or seventies, the sense of an eternal Paris.’
The radical lines are assuaged by the soft furniture and the rich materials. India Mahdavi’s committed architectural stance, inspired by a contemporary jungle setting, planted a nocturnal Eden in a studded ‘peacock blue’ leather and primary color baizes.
