LADURÉE QUAI DES BERGUES, GENÈVE
India Mahdavi has applied her characteristic style to the ladurée cafe inside the historic Hôtel des Bergues in Genève, Switzerland. The French pastry brand is renowned for its macarons that come wrapped in an elegant packaging to complement, and their new location includes a patisserie, restaurant, and a tea lounge.
CHEZ NINA, MILAN
This 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 coloured velvet banquettes and the acid candy glass tables have been designed especially for the space.
LADURÉE BEVERLY HILLS, LOS ANGELES
Old Hollywood glamour and the joy of the flower-power 1970s California combined into a dreamy, groovy-yet-chic garden party that honours the signature pastel colours 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 technicolour.
LE GERMAIN, PARIS
The 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.
LE GERMAIN PARADISIO, PARIS
Located in the heart of Saint-Germain-des-Prés under Le Germain restaurant, this India Mahdavi-designed bijou cinema offers a unique cinema-going experience.
