A modern patisserie for a dreamer with a sweet tooth.

'Nanan' means sweetmeats in French and sweets play the leading role in this signature design of a modern patsserie. The deliberately minimalist interior provides a subtle setting for the protagonists: finely decorated sophistcated cakes and éclairs made with metculous care.

The speciality of this patsserie, the éclair, has inspired the interior design and the visual identity of Nanan. The cake’s oval shape is echoed in the central island counter with display that operates almost like a glass cabinet in a jeweller’s shop. Its positioning provides room for the flow of customers who can choose and admire trays of tempting bijou sweets and small works of the art of confectionary.

Eclairs have also inspired the bespoke design of lamps and other details of the interior such as mirrors, door handles, coat hangers and veneer perforation. An éclair motif has naturally lent itself to the patsserie’s visual identfication.

The whole place is given a context of soI, velvet, pink walls with arched doorways. Combined with delicate shining brass details it builds a rather surreal ambience of a dream world.
