In the front row seat

French chef Yannick Alléno has amassed fame and popularity thanks to his three stars in the Michelin Guide 2020, a gastronomic seal of approval that ensures the future success of his new dining space on the ground floor of the Pavyllon Ledoyen restaurant in Paris. The venue, close to the Champs-Élysées, is conceived as a huge gastronomic bar completely open to the kitchen, with Dekton taking centre stage.

Diners have a front row seat to enjoy the chef’s choreographies and the execution of dishes in which French influences mingle with other international culinary traditions. The bar seats 30 diners and every detail of its design has been carefully selected by the chef himself, who has worked hand in hand with interior designer Chahan Minassian, who is fond of luxurious and refined style.

Mix of materials and textures

The interplay between materials and textures is one of the highlights of this design. The architect, who has already designed several spaces in the Hôtel de Crillon and in residential buildings around the world, has envisioned a wooden counter with a bronze patina whose line runs along a set of coloured mirrors.

The kitchen, visible from the bar seating, becomes the centrepiece and the place where the dishes are served on the large worktops, where Dekton has been used. Specifically, the designer chose the Galema colour in a green shade with hints of brown that brings the space to life and conveys a cosy feeling. Grey and green colours in the kitchen and bar are combined with materials such as velvet and suede for the seating and cerused oak panels on the walls, creating a harmonious atmosphere.

A professional and interactive space

The space has been designed for the tasting of dishes and conviviality, without compromising on quality. In the case of the kitchen, they wanted a hard-wearing material and Dekton is the perfect material for a chef’s work surfaces. Not only does it require little maintenance and is resistant to stains (due to its low porosity) and scratches, but it also provides the refined look that professional kitchens demand.
