The Edge Profile N°11 embodies the blossoming of the Art Deco era. It is smaller by 1.5cm than the N°18, but that is nothing to be ashamed of. Its little diamonds fill the space of a room. They illuminate the lines and the curves of a bar. A pewter bar top enlightens a room and catches the eye. The Art Deco movement was also founded on this search for new types of floodlights. Neon lights were created then, and they endeavored to embellish the perspectives of spaces.
This Edge Profile not only brightens its surroundings but underlines the atmosphere of a restaurant. Indeed, it matches perfectly the innovative cuisine of Thierry Faucher who revisits the Bistro classics with an unparalleled effervescence at « L’Os à Moelle ». It looks good, it tastes good, it’s “chic”! Art Deco is also a state of mind!
At the edge of Belleville, a former working-class area of Paris where Edith Piaf was brought up, one can discover « Aux Tables du Père Lachaise ». This Bistro is just opposite one of the main doors of the famous cemetery. Their pewter countertop was built in the early 1930s by Marcel Nectoux, and we designed two raised pewter tables for them in 2019. . The menu is typically Parisian, it can take you back to when Maurice Chevalier was the pride of Ménilmontant. It’s delightfully simple and tasty, even the bread is homemade. This Edge Profile N°11 melts into the buzz of this upcoming area, as it reminds us also of the Belleville of the days gone by.
