Studio Vincent Eschalier : KANOUN

At the 98 number on rue de Charonne in Paris (11e), architect Vincent Eschalier imagines the KANOUN tea room. A pastel setting, warm and friendly that rewards the taste buds as the eyes.

Following their visit and favorite for the restaurant 52, arranged in 2014 by the Studio Vincent Eschalier, Lamine and Stéphane, the two creators of the KANOUN tea room decided to call on the architect to create a jewel of softness located on the ground floor of a brick office building.

On either side of the street entrance, the master builder, assisted by interior designer Diane Kergal, installs on one side a ribbed Carrara marble countertop displaying the homemade pastries that are reflected in a majestic full-height mirror placed behind the display, and on the other gray Corian © tables and pastel colored armchairs. Three oval alcoves equipped with large navy benches marrying the rounded shape of the walls were installed in recesses of the single piece of 90 square meters, for a more intimate moment.


Here, no ostentatious decoration, only a fine felt fresco designed by the Bulgarian artist Boris Deltchev adorns the niches illuminated by discrete neon lights camouflaged behind the seats. Simplicity, for a calm and voluptuous atmosphere, warmed by an oak floor and a constellation of blown glass suspensions from the collection Float of SkLO.

A new address where to put our senses in ecstasy!
