Monsieur-Bleu-Restaurant-Palais-de-Tokyo-Paris_11In creating the sleek interiors for Monsieur Bleu French architect Joseph Dirand took inspiration from Art Deco glamour, the artwork of Yves Klein, and the minimalist style of Adolf Loos.

A soaring space with a large terrace overlooking the Seine, Monsieur Bleu features velvet banquettes and Eero Saarinen chairs in a refined palette of grays and greens set against marble-and-oak floors and walls clad with vintage Lalique glass panels.

The name may suggest otherwise, but there’s not an inch of azure in sight at Monsieur Bleu.
Named after a fictional character, the restaurant is already hailed as the place to be.

Dirand translated his signature aesthetic – low-key, cool and minimal – into his first restaurant design, cleverly combining classical and contemporary elements.

The topology of the floor slabs served as a guideline for the scheme. Marble, mirrors, tiles – as well as Michel Boyer’s geometric, rectilinear chandeliers – fill the voluminous space. Warmth arrives in the interior through soft olive-green tones – the same colour that’s found in the Connemara green marble and plush velvet seating.
