LOULOU, A NEW RESTAURANT AT LES ARTS DECORATIFS IN PARIS
In tandem with Les Arts Décoratifs marking its 30th anniversary this year, the museum is getting a new restaurant called LOULOU, with a view on the Tuileries Gardens, the Louvre Pyramid and the Eiffel Tower.
The team of Palais de Tokyo’s Monsieur Bleu is behind the new venture, including Joseph Dirand for the interior design. The space was conceived to be like “the dining room of a decorative arts collector”.
Each level reflects a decorative arts period: The Seventies for the ground floor that’s made of five salons and the 18th century with a French Art Deco twist for the upstairs. Joseph Dirand dotted the space with iconic design objects and Brossier Saderne had the pleasure to manufacture two different bespoke wall lamps in brass finish highlight a discreet and warm lighting on wall panels.
More than a restaurant, Loulou is a perpetual effervescence place of life. The iconic French designer, Jean-Charles de Castelbajac was also tapped to create the restaurant’s logo.
