如今位于伦敦的设计师John Whelan在巴黎生活了十年,当然,这并没有他成为一名巴黎人,但这确实让他对设计有了新的见解。

在这新的见解中,他勇敢地引导着一系列法国的设计变革,将腐朽与新奇结合在一起。

London-based designer John Whelan lived in Paris for a decade which, of course, doesn’t make him a Parisian, but it does give him an inside perspective.

With that perspective, he’s bravely guiding a series of French bouillons to an intriguingly confusing combination of decay and novelty.

这里曾经是一个便宜的小酒馆,是每个人对社会生活、文化和享受美食的想象模版。

A bouillon used to be a slightly less-expensive brasserie, an everyman’s version of the important centre of social life, culture and culinary enjoyment.

Whelan曾在《巴黎》中这样描述这家餐厅:“如果你掉进一个让人产生幻觉的鱼缸里,你会有什么感觉?”

餐厅是真正的巴黎地标,位于Rue du Faubourg Saint-Denis,是的,餐厅的内部装修是疯狂的。

Bouillon Julien in Paris is Whelan’s take on how it would feel if you ‘descended into a hallucinogenic fish tank’, as he has been quoted as describing the restaurant.

The restaurant is a true Parisian landmark, located on Rue du Faubourg Saint-Denis, and yes, the interior is crazy.

那些奇怪的、褪色的颜色,不同的装饰元素和极其丑陋的地毯,都能让你感受到时间的混乱感。

但我们最喜欢的是它那令人愉悦的衰败感,那种略显凌乱的生活背景,吟诵着诗歌,唱着赞美诗,喝着香槟的场景。这里的元素有点太多了,但你不想从中去除任何东西。

The strange, faded colours, disparate decorative elements and supremely ugly carpeting all add to a sense of time-earned chaos.

But what we love most is its lovely feel of decay, of being a slightly unkempt backdrop for dramatic lives lived, poems recited, chansons sung and champagne drunk. It’s all a bit too much, yet you wouldn’t want to take anything away from it.

Whelan的公司,圣卢克公会,是一个艺术家、建筑师和工匠的联盟,在巴黎和伦敦都有业务。

Bouillon Julien是法国翻新15家小酒馆的项目的一部分,全部由Les Grandes Brasseries de l’Est拥有。

Whelan’s company, The Guild of Saint Luke, is an affiliation of artists, architects and artisans that operates in both Paris and London.

Bouillon Julien is part of a larger deal to renovate 15 brasseries in France, all owned by Les Grandes Brasseries de l’Est.

此前,Whelan的团队完成了对巴黎第10区的Brasserie Floderer和兰斯的Brasserie Excelsior的重新设计。

Previously, Whelan’s team has completed the re-imagining of Brasserie Floderer in the 10th arrondissement of  Paris and the Brasserie Excelsior in Reims.
