Leading French interior designer Michael Malapert has been working on some very interesting new eateries in Paris that a look like great places to sample some very fine Parisian cuisine.
A Noste in Paris (Opening September 2014)
Located in the 2nd district of Paris, near place de la Bourse, A Noste restaurant is a new concept of fooding created by Julien Duboué, reputed french chief. The area is composed by two different zones according to the offer. On the ground floor, hosts will find tapas disches and street food meals. The first floor is dedicated to the gastronomic cuisine and will be held by local producers (mainly in the Landes). A Noste provides also a ‘rotisserie’ department inside the gastronomic area. Michaël Malapert has worked on the global concept inspired by a Landes countryside’s architecture A Noste’s atmosphere is based on a friendly experience with great energies mixing gastronomy and street food.
Le Récepteur is a real piece of Brooklyn in downtown Paris. Much more than an inspiration, the new spot is the New York projection warmer and more authentic than Manhattan installed close to the Statue of Liberty in Paris. The front takes up the codes of the major New York addresses. The interior is established with a soil mixed with black and white checkered flooring, walls are dressed in a wood siding and hand-molded brick units, ceiling fixtures are a network of copper and pipes and the glass facade made of crude steel. A large patina wooden bar is the extension of a central host table in a New York bistro atmosphere.
The light is the main element of the Yuman’s concept as vital energy. Yuman is 100% organic with a preference to give priority to local products. This restaurant is mixing a refined grocery, a place to live for the neighbourhood. A reconnecting and consistent aera open each day. From the parquet floor, the grey concrete walls, to the glazing doors with an access onto the terrace facing south, Michaël Malapert has created a real place to live reflecting the Yuman way of life. The open-plan kitchen has been established as an « artist’s workshop » facing a large « table d’hôtes » with a stylised tree giving to the spacious dining room, a single volume.
