Asian à la française – this is the motto the founders of the restaurant chain “Le TIGrr” chose for their cuisine, and they have already opened four restaurants in France. After Courchevel, Saint-Tropez and Megève, culinary delights and good drinks can now be enjoyed in a stylish environment in the heart of Paris: bar, restaurant and club – Le TIGrr is a place for wide range of occasions, entirely under the protection of the Asian king of the jungle.
The mystic colour concept in black and gold dominates throughout the restaurant. French designer Philippe Di Méo was inspired by the unmistakable stripe pattern of the tiger. The shy but strong character of the wild cat is reflected in the interior, for which Di Méo chose classic Thonet furniture with clear lines. He used almost 50 chairs from various ranges: the archetypal wooden chair 130 by Japanese designer Naoto Fukasawa is grouped around the dining tables in noble black. Eight upholstered versions of model 130 with a cover shimmering in gold are a sophisticated visual distraction. At the bar, twelve black bentwood stools 204 PH with leather-covered seats and golden footrests play with the tapestry colours. The second floor of the “Le TIGrr” provides a comfortable and calm atmosphere for smaller groups. Twelve classic tubular steel cantilever chairs S 64 V with wicker contribute to the alluring private dining room.
