From the architect. Chef Fre Peneau’s new restaurant, Le Dauphin is an 80 sqm ‘obsession in white’. OMA‘s Rem Koolhaas and associate Clement Blanchet received the Fooding 2010 award for their interior design of the restaurant that opened December 2010.

Predominant materials of marble, mirrors and wood enlarge the space through reflection, and blur the boundary between interior and exterior.

It seems that a previous architect got the permission for the protruding box at the entrance. Still, it looks like an unfair takeover of the sidewalk. I don't think all the coffee shops there would manage to expand the same way.

Apart from that I like the project. It has some intriguing informality in the spirit of Koolhas' work.

#ledauphin http://t.co/NcLRFx8T curves and mirror are rebellious but the furniture has the hallmarks of a classic #paris eatery. Cool combo.

This is no step down for OMA, as usual REM is much cooler than the rest. Inaki Aizpitarte is a amazingly talented young chef, who is leading cuisine in new and exciting directions, a perfect pairing for REM.

OMA interior doing fit-outs?! (And a poor one at that) Recession mode, per chance?

Nicely done, very attractive, and the placement of the stone and reflective surfaces works really well. But this cafe must be hugely reverberant, I can’t even imagine how noisy it would be if you had 25 or 30 people in there.

That's exactly my first thoughts. They should put a video with people in it, so we can hear :-)
