Nomiya : Temporary restaurant on the roof of the « Palais de Tokyo »

The art center « Le Palais de Tokyo » asked us to imagine a temporay
piece on the roof of the building. We designed a take-down and easily
transportable module, which is a twelve seats dining room, with a panoramic
view on Paris. Nomiya is the name of the very small restaurant in Japan.

The structure is 18m long,  4m large, 3.50 m high and weights 22 tonnes.
It has been constructed in the Cherbourg boatyard, in the North of France,
and transported in two pieces by special trunks to Paris, and then set on
the roof of the Museum.

This construction is composed by a glass volume, covered by a metallic
skin on its central part.

The dining area, entirely made of glass, is looking at the Seine and the
Eiffel tower.

The central part (cooking aera) is covered by a punched made-to-measure
sheet metal. The perforations represent an aurora borealis drawing.

The lightning system is put between the glass and the metallic skins.

Composed by lines of leds, it emphasizes the drawing of the facade and
changes its colors, like a real aurora borealis.

The interior design is minimalist, with a white Corian furniture and a
grey wooden floor.
