Eclectic is the name of a restaurant in Paris, France which boasts an interior created by the British designer Tom Dixon with a combination of raw and industrial materials such as concrete with gentler textures like leather, marble or brass for the details.
The project was commissioned by Fabienne and Philippe Amzalak and it is the first flagship interior created by the Design Research Studio of Tom Dixon in France. The project is in the Beaugrenelle Centre which is a redesign of a shopping mall which was originally opened in 1978 with an aesthetic that aims to be homage of the Brutalist style of the era.
Due to the setting, the designer wanted to make the restaurant integrated into the modernist tone surrounding it and the technical areas were left exposed with concrete as the main material providing its texture whenever possible, through the floors, columns and ceiling combined with waxed surfaces or warm brass panels.
The geometric shapes used during Brutalism find their way in the hexagonal wall panels and the furniture created various environments with inverted conical tops on the tables, rounded sinks in the bathrooms or the angular podium at the entrance.
