In the previous blog post you could see the high-end home of French architect Joseph Dirand (designer of glamorous boutiques around the world, such as Chloé in Paris, Alexander Wang in Beijing, and Pucci in New York, just to name a few). As I promised, today I show you over another masterpiece of this talented interior designer: Monsieur Bleu, a restaurant in Palais de Tokyo in Paris where one can not only enrich with a culinary but also an artistic experience. Just like in most of his works, Dirand combined in this project of 2013 too minimalist details with luxurious materials, classical elements with contemporary ones; and created a heady mix on a grand scale. The result is low-key, intangible, cool and minimal; open and particular, lively and intimate at the same time. This cosmopolitan restaurant was named after a fictional character, M. Bleu, who had been imagined as a cultivated, elegant, mysterious and suave bourgeois gentleman. This fictional character ‘guided’ Diran when designing the grandiose interior of the restaurant. He managed to create an absolutely timeless, offbeat and elegant ambiance.
