Frame a stylish Franco-Californian restaurant in Paris
Designed by renowned French designer Christopher Pillet, Frame is a laid-back and trendy Franco-Californian brasserie where you can nosh on Californian dishes with a French twist – for example, a side of mac ‘n’ cheese accompanies coq au vin, ooh la la.
The chic Parisian restaurant was conceived to be an animated space that encourages gatherings with friends and family. Being an open space that merges with its exterior due to its glass walls, this Californian styled restaurant symbolises freedom as it brings a new dimension to the traditional Parisian brasserie.
With its open kitchen, private room, bar, vinoteca and stunning terrace, Frame offers offers a wholly unique experience. Namely, the Californian experience à la française.
Throughout the day, from breakfast to dinner, from tea-time to cocktails, the Paris brasserie offers an inventive and extensive menu. Beyond a simple restaurant, Frame is a laid-back Franco-Californian brasserie, a space of freedom, embodying a West Coast attitude in a Parisian setting.
Christophe Pillet, interior architect and designer, said: “When one designs a restaurant, we must think of the story we want to tell to those who will visit it. The work of a designer is that of being a narrator, of telling a story to someone, and for this one to be understandable, it must be simple.”
The designer is one of the rare French designers to enjoy international recognition due to the quality and variety of his creations. Architecture, furniture, product design and artistic direction are only some of the fields explored by him while his name continues to be associated with important brands and projects of great scale.
For this Californian brasserie, the designer focused on a mineral décor inspired by nature. The predominant warm grey tones of the décor are contrasted with colourful pieces that bring it to life. Wood, marble and leather combined with patina and bronze add an enriching touch to this environment.
The result is a timeless space, which oozes contemporary chic designed by Christophe Pillet.
Located a stone’s throw from the Eiffel Tower, the restaurant not only boasts stunning interiors and a vibrant menu, but also green credentials by producing its own honey on site, houses a chicken coop and organic garden where more than 250 varieties of fruits, vegetables and herbs are grown.
