Missy French Sydney

In the early eighties, the Philippe Starck designed, Café Costes in Paris, caused quite a stir.

It was the most publicised example of rejecting traditional café designs and creating something unique and modern. Today it is no more but that one project ignited a flurry of ‘designer’ cafés around the globe.

Missy French is the contemporary, casual and comfortable space that the sophisticated Sydney neighbourhood of Potts Point demands.

The outcome was a ‘soft industrial’ urban loft environment, a contemporary, relaxed and comfortable experience. The space is consequently a contrast of refined components like commissioned artwork or washed linen upholstery and crude exposed services and concrete.
