GamFratesi restores la maison du danemark with brasserie + fine dining hub in paris

 

danish design studio GamFratesi completes the renovation of two restaurants in ‘la maison du danemark’, on the champs-élysées of paris. flora danica is a high end brasserie on the ground floor while copenhague houses a fine dining experience on the first level. in each space, contemporary items coexist naturally with classical mid-century danish design features.

flora danica is a contemporary danish brasserie with the sophistication of french influences. the atmosphere is characterized by green hues used for fabrics and natural stone. the color palette is complemented by tones of gray, furniture with black and brass details, as well as a herringbone marble floor combining carrara and green. the other half of the restaurant has softer and more intimate qualities, with floor carpets and velvet sofas. in addition, GamFratesi embeds the traditional flora danica drawings within a geometric frame structure on the walls, revealing the drawings as a large botanical display.

on the other hand, the copenhague restaurant is characterized by an intense atmosphere. a combination of dark blue leather and kvadrat textiles with deep blue curtains and tablecloths is selected to welcome the visitors in an intimate setting. even more, the presence of the white color will bring attention to the culinary experience in a sharp contrast between refined danish cuisine and the striking context. white porcelain plates are created as a special edition in collaboration with royal copenhagen and GamFratesi.
