« To create a Parisian brasserie, in a very new building, we absorbed the history of the neighbourhood and its brasseries. Alain Ducasse pointed us towards a multitude of reference objects and places, for inspiration. We immersed ourselves with this essence, these codes; we dissected and interpreted them to find a precise and contemporary style, linked to our own lines."
Ciguë’s founders, Alphonse Sartout, Hugo Haas, Camille Benard and Guillem Renard


Once past the curved glass entrance, the spacious room exposes, under a ceiling of industrial frames painted in white, spaces adapted to urban life and its alternated rhythms and varied desires: whether along the display case in comfortable armchairs with views on the garden, at the bar, on a stool, for an on-the-go lunch, on the benches for small and large tables, or in alcoves for more privacy.


Details that create hospitality
Champeaux is a living space, Ciguë saw it as eminently functional. Storage room in the back of booths and in partitions, coat hooks on the walls, hooks under the bar, straps under the bar stools, all create storage for coats, bags and personal effects. The square tables can be assembled or separated along the benches, to reconfigure depending on groups. Plugs are at hand to charge your phone or laptop. Small details that make all the difference.


A running bar – central element of the room - is illuminated by an imposing aluminium chandelier. The terrazzo tables are surrounded by chairs, or black or tan leather banquettes with saddle-stich seams. The walls, coated in prairie green stucco confer freshness in the daytime and depth in the evening. Graceful copper suspensions as well as glass blown and copper luminary tubes diffuse gradient light, depending on the time of day; soft in the morning and warm in the evening
