india mahdavi creates a garden of delights for ladurée inside geneva hotel

 

recognized for her whimsical interiors and soft pink candy chair in spaces including sketch london and the redvalentino flagship store, india mahdavi has applied her characteristic style to the ladurée cafe inside the historic hôtel des bergues in geneva, switzerland.

the french pastry brand is renowned for their macarons that come wrapped in an elegant packaging to complement, and their new location includes a patisserie, restaurant and a tea lounge. the three spaces complementing each other envisioned by india mahdavi as ‘a garden of delights’.

the interiors celebrate the delicate and luxury nature of the context and pastry company itself. curving forms can be seen in the fluted counters, bench seating, and tables that follow a color palette of soft pastel hues. in contrast, the tea lounge interprets a starry and playful setting finished in a dark forest green; the round space reserved for private events. the theme of playing with curves and straight angles is continued in the large dining and patisserie room. the undulating festooned chairs are juxtaposed with the diamond printed monochrome floor.
