About the project
When the Great Gatsby meets Urban Tropical energy and you have Monsieur 14 – a chic new restaurant with a contemporary twist located in Lausanne, Switzerland.
Monsieur 14 newly opened doors are inspired by a mix of urban jungle elements and “jazzy” Art Déco décor. Swiss Bureau worked closely with an inspiring client to design a standout dining experience, placing particular care in the concept and details. The construction has been carefully executed by their fit-out partner in Switzerland, Adeli & Partners.
Monsieur 14 focuses on curating an array of experiences and offers copious amounts of “insta-worthy” moments for its guests. The stylish urban design creates an exciting visual journey through a mix of modern detailing, intricate décor, geometric shapes, and beautifully selected biophilia, including a sculptural life-size tree recomposed of driftwood, imagined by an amazing French Artist.
The vibrancy and mystery of tropical jungle are emulated through abundant greenery, while accent mirrors dress the walls creating a cohesive and glamorous design language. An eclectic mix of natural materials, wood, touches of brass, velvet, faux white marble, massive green plants, and lighting in the shape of birds help bring the story to life. The bar introduces redesigned subway tiles, rough concrete texture, sleek wood finish, and metal mesh, forming an elegant and strong geometric statement piece, bringing the whole design together in spellbinding ways.
