Designed by the internationally acclaimed designer and creator, Tom Dixon Studio, the newly renovated restaurant “Le Drugstore” Brasserie, which has been a glamorous hotspot for more than 60 years. The new restaurant is located just a few steps from the prestigious Arc de Triomphe, in Paris, and brings back the unrivalled glamour of the 60’s.
Tom Dixon simplified the interiors of the restaurant by accentuating a broad palette of opulent finishes and honest materials which were chosen for their longevity. Wood was used to line the walls and complement the marble-top+ bars while deep tones of oxblood upholstery and brass fixtures contrast perfectly to give a contemporary nod to the 60’s world of advertising. At the 350 sqm restaurant, visitors can enjoy a wide variety of things, from books to French pastries, to jewellery, to cigars, and champagne, of course.

It is wrapped with a bespoke brass and reeded glass bookcase which provides the utmost privacy and divides the retail and dining spaces. Tom Dixon designed the furniture of Le Drugstore, including the micro wingback chairs, finished in grey and deep yellow.
