Saguez & Partners : Kusmi Tea

The famous Franco-Russian tea brand founded in 1867 in St. Petersburg has won millions of consumers. Proof of its success, Kusmi Tea has invested the most beautiful avenue in the world with a shop-restaurant designed by Saguez & Partners agency.

The transparent window of the store, screen printed with the logo of the brand, arouses curiosity and invites you to discover his world. The refined decor of the place showcases the iconic colored tea boxes of the brand. Different canvas are hung on the walls and show the bright colors of the tea brand. On the ground, the architects chose to use porcelain in a dark color contrasting with the white walls, marble used for furniture and colored canvas.

Saguez & Partners also had the challenge of reinterpreting the Slavic culture while combining it with a contemporary aesthetic. This desire has led notably by the use of lamps "Ruski", evoke the domes of the Russian church of Saint Basil and spreading a soft light.

Upstairs, one discovers a tasting area and restaurant named after the founder of the brand Café Kousmischoff. Serving the teas of the mark but also of Franco-Russian specialties. The atmosphere of the tea room is more intimate and refined. Depending on the time of day, the client is installed on the benches decorated with cushions on the oak bar stools "Alki" or along windows with views of the Champs-Elysees. The architects chose noble and clear materials such as wood flooring gouged, red and gold wall coverings, furniture Corian and marble consoles.
