La Cave a Vin 9 by Cyrille Druart of Paris, France
Cyrille Druart said of this project that “We have strived to clean off the dusty image associated with a wine bar.
Instead, we aimed to turn it into an intimate, bright, colourful space – firmly anchored in modernity.”
La Cave a Vin 9 is situated, in the dynamic bustling district of Les Halles, right in the heart of Paris. The chic urban interior design of this stylish wine bar reflects both the energy of this revitalized location and also Cyrille Druart’s unique and creative vision. The up market interior breaks with convention and offers an altogether different kind of venue for enjoying good food, good wine and good company. The styling of La Cave a von 9 is well matched to the experiences and expectations of sophisticated 21st Century Parisians
The creative concept behind this stylish urban interior design
The image of rich red wine pouring into glass is an evocative one. In abstraction it has become an exciting and creative concept uniting all formal elements of this fashionable wine bar. This is not a large venue, but what it lacks in space it makes up for in design impact.
This distinctive urban interior design appears to be based on colors associated with red wine flowing into a crystal clear glass, black and white with a dramatic splash of red. In addition, the wine and glass imagery focuses attention on the definition of lines and an interesting elongation and distortion of shape. Take this into the interior design and we can see how elegant fluid lines are highlighted in the metallic tall stools, edges of transparent furnishings, glass shelves even on reflections on the bottles themselves.
Despite being a relative small area, the height of the bar is maximized through the use of a mirrored ceiling. This creates a fascinating illusion which adds to the visual impact and intriguing ambience of the bar. The atmosphere in La Cave a Vin 9 is intimate and welcoming with just a hint of the unexpected.
Transparency and light create this unique urban interior design.
The impact of the wine glass imagery is brought to life by the creative use of colored LED lighting which has been positioned to illuminate transparent furniture and fittings from within. This unusual strategy is largely responsible for uniting the whole design concept as one. The plethora of materials in the wine bar’s interior is diverse and energetic. Stone walls and raw concrete contrast sleek polished metals glass and polymers. Under the influence of the captivating illumination all these complex elements merge as if on one canvas. In fact, as harmoniously and fluidly as in the powerful abstract painting that hangs above the main bar. Interestingly this is based on the vision of wine flowing into a glass. So the urban interior design concept comes full circle
