Monsieur Bleu restaurant by Joseph Dirand, Paris

May 29th, 2013 by retail design blog

The name may suggest otherwise, but there’s not an inch of azure in sight at Monsieur Bleu. Named after a fictional character, Monsieur Bleu – the restaurant that is already hailed as the place to be seen this summer, not least for its interior design by French architect Joseph Dirand – has just opened at Palais de Tokyo in Paris. Dirand translated his signature aesthetic – low-key, cool and minimal – into his first restaurant design, cleverly combining classical and contemporary elements.

The topology of the floor slabs served as a guideline for the scheme. Marble, mirrors, tiles – as well as Michel Boyer’s geometric, rectilinear chandeliers – fill the voluminous space. Warmth arrives in the interior through soft olive-green tones – the same colour that’s found in the Connemara green marble and plush velvet seating.

One thought on “Monsieur Bleu restaurant by Joseph Dirand, Paris

  1. Wow, what a fantastic restaurant design! I love the straight lines of the tufted restaurant booths paired with the pod-shaped restaurant chairs. The eclectic fabric patterns create a plush but retro feel in an otherwise modern design. The simple lines of the outdoor restaurant furniture are just right on a patio with a view like that! Beautiful!
