RESTO DES CHEFS

Russian architects and designers IRINA & OLGA SUNDUKOVY have taken on the design of this unique restaurant. A pop-up restaurant with renowned chefs in the kitchen, nestled in an urban farm between hydroponics and horticultural lighting.

Their current projects include a MGallery Hotel by Sofitel in Plovdiv, a Sofitel in Cotonou, another MGallery in Nairobi, the model room for a Hotel Life in Paris, the lobby of a Novotel in London, and another model room for an Ibis hotel in Dubai.

BAR SPACE

Interior designer OSCAR LUCIEN (for MAISONNUMERO20) has designed a “deco-shaker”-themed bar. The result is a neo-mixology, somewhere between intoxicating elixir and hidden sanctuary in a very exclusive hotel.

Highlights : In 2019, Oscar Lucien was responsible for the interior decorating of the Paradis Latin in Paris (5th arrondissement), Hotel Konti (4 stars) in Bordeaux and the Derby Alma (4 stars) in Paris (7th arrondissement). His current projects include the Champs-Elysées Plaza Hotel (5 stars) in Paris (8th arrondissement), MGallery by Sofitel La Défense (5 stars), Clichy-Batignolles (4 stars) in Paris (17th arrondissement) and Tropical (4 stars) in St Barts.

VICTOR DELPIERRE, world champion of the Coffee In Good Spirits championship has been given carte blanche to showcase the booming world of coffee and the work of baristas. The Studio Café will offer three spaces: Home Barista Inspiration, Coffee Bistronomie and the Coffee Shop Experience, featuring demonstrations, tastings, masterclasses and more.

PAVILION 3

SPAZIO MORI

Spazio Mori is the space dedicated to Italian gastronomy, imagined by the Parisian chef Massimo Mori.

From panettone in the morning to aperitivo at the end of the day, not to mention the pranzo for lunch, we find here the notion of excellence and Italian hospitality around an innovative fully equipped open kitchen.

A place for meetings, interactions and discoveries at the same time, the Spazio Mori welcomes one Italian women chef per day who will introduce you to an exclusive gastronomic experience.

Simultaneously bar, lounge and restaurant (with 120 seats), the Spazio Mori is designed by Thierry Virvaire, scenographer and artistic director partnering with the show. He brings in these three spaces an oneiric atmosphere, staged with different shades of reds and powder pinks which he holds dear.

Floor coverings as well as pieces of furniture will be designed in exclusivity for the project in partnership with the exhibitors who are renowned textile editors. The identity of the decoration is enhanced by a particularly wide and qualitative selection of unique textiles and highlighted with various shades revealing a warm and cosy atmosphere.

What would exceptional products mean without exceptional table designs? The Spazio Mori invite you to seat at these festive tables, created for the most part by women designers that where selected by Thierry Virvaire.

THE SIGNATURE

This space gives pride of place to furniture fabric designers and features a bar designed by LALLY & BERGER.

Highlights : This pair of interior designers, who are responsible for the recent renovation of 32 rooms and the Suite Belle Etoile (Rooftop penthouse of the hotel) of Le Meurice Hotel (Dorchester Collection Group) in Paris (1st arrondissement), plan to continue their work at the palace hotel in 2020, with the renovation of 20 other rooms.
