86Champs, the gourmet space of Pierre Hermé and L’Occitane

The Champs Elysees in Paris has a new goumet corner, 86Champs, designed by Pierre Hermé and L’Occitane.

Both companies defend the use of natural ingredients and opt for creativity. Two years ago, the cosmetics, facial treatment, and perfumes company launched a collection of fragrances imagined by the pastry chef and now they have wanted to go further by creating a cosy and refined space, with the aim of allowing visitors to experience an unprecedented experience. From early in the morning until late at night, those who come can have a detox breakfast, eat, order a tea, or end the day with a cocktail, as well as enjoy its countless services: dessert bar, restaurant, coffee tastings, beauty rituals, and wellness products, and a shop where you can buy cakes, macarons, chocolates, perfumes, creams, and cosmetics.

The architecture, designed by Laura González, is timeless, delicate, feminine, and emphasizes her love for nature. A universe that wanted to combine these two worlds, highlighting common elements. The result is a warm place of oak, marble, travertine, ceramic, brass, and blown glass. The range of colors is soft and natural, and is inspired by Cezanne’s paintings. The handmade ceramics are made to measure and in the center there is a spectacular hanging sculpture formed by a thousand blown glass balloons.
