Riccardo Giraudi’s Parisian branch of the Beefbar was built in 1898 by architect Émile Hurtré as Hotel Langham and carefully adorned by painter Jules Wielhorski. Today, meat eaters are in their element here. Emil Humbert and Christophe Poyet brought the architectural details into the present and enhanced them with bold colors and modern furniture. The duo implemented the idea of taking luxury from the minimalist corner and making it festival for all senses with a blend of colors, patterns and materials. Art-nouveau elements such as thick rugs and rich green shades meet Art déco in the shape of marble, nut wood and brass.
Ceiling and walls were bricked in for decades as one wanted to protect the art from the Nazis. Humbert & Poyet revived the almost forgotten treasures.
