Paris – Art Home
A partnership between Swedish electrical appliance maker, Electrolux, and the Palais de Toyko (a contemporary art museum in Paris), has resulted in a rectangular, purple-hued, glass-and-steel box, which sits atop the museum. The stunning space, that was conceived by award-winning artist Laurent Grasso, houses Nomiya, a conceptual dining space for 12.
Inside the box, meals are created in a streamlined kitchen outfitted by Electrolux. A dozen guests dine at a single table while surrounded by 360-degree views of Paris – the Eiffel Tower directly in front. The name Nomiya and its uniquely intimate vibe, were inspired by tiny Japanese bars that are designed to encourage communication among guests. It only makes sense that guests of Nomiya – housed inside a gallery – feel like an art object themselves, as the people passing below watch on as they dine. A three-course lunch costs about 60 Euros or approximately $80 – without drinks or tip.
The temporary installation/restaurant will stay in Paris until September, before taking off on a tour of France, and possibly abroad. Reservations are online only and booking at least a month in advance is recommended. To book your spot overlooking the city of lights or to learn more about the project, visit Art-Home by Electrolux.
