The Paris-based designer and architect, India Mahdavi, creates statement-making interiors in a bevy of rainbow-bright hues with the help of incredibly designed art furniture. Today, we have selected a few of her best restaurant designs that truly enhance everything that is great about this contemporary artist.
CHEZ NINA, MILANThis interior design project by India Mahdavi is quite unusual, as it is a private club as well as a gallery, specifically a private club at Nilufar Gallery Via della Spiga. It was designed as a popup, but it is still there. The colored velvet banquettes and the acid candy glass tables have been designed especially for the space.
LADURÉE BEVERLY HILLS, LOS ANGELESOld Hollywood glamour and the joy of the flower-power 1970s California combined into a dreamy, groovy-yet-chic garden party that honors the signature pastel colors and Versailles spirit of Ladurée, is what the designer, India Mahdavi, had in mind for this interior design. This beautiful piece is found at Ladurée Beverly Hills, a little mix of sweetness and technicolor.
LE GERMAIN, PARISThe Café Germain by India Mahdavi offers an alternative to the traditional Parisian brasserie. The restaurant is spread into two floors whereas each of them serves a different function. What the Iranian-born and Paris-based architect in charge of the interior design of Germain aimed was to create a different style in each of the restaurant’s rooms.
