Kinugawa Japanese restaurant by Gilles & Boissier, Paris

January 18th, 2013 by retail design blog

In 2010, the re-design of the Japanese restaurant Kinugawa in Paris was assigned to the interior designers Patrick Gilles and Dorothée Boissier. Kinugawa opened its doors only recently, renewing its appointment with its prestigious clientele with an elegant sushi bar and a restaurant offering Toyofumi Ozuru’s exquisite dishes.

Renowned for their eclectic style, Gilles & Boissier – as the creative duo’s agency is called – once again achieved a sophisticated combination of elements to create an environment that resembles a French brasserie and has the atmosphere of a Japanese restaurant.

Sculpted wooden panels cover the openings and windows, triggering a dialogue between light and shadow, while Alix Waline’s painting on the 6m high wall on the ground floor – a fine sample of contemporary pointillism – contributes to the high emotional intelligence of the space. The artist’s work continues on the first floor, juxtaposed against walls textured like sand on the beach – gracefully proving that contrasts of textures and materials are always on top of Gilles & Boissier’s creative agenda.
