However, the experience extends beyond taste and aroma. The architectural design of the venue is in the deft hands of Studio KO. Karl Fournier and Olivier Marty, the duo behind Studio KO, have imbued spaces from Los Angeles to London with their elevated comfort and sophistication. Their design prowess will find a new expression in the heart of Paris at Silencio des Prés. A taste of their craft is already generating buzz, with Louis Vuitton’s head of menswear, Virgil Abloh, documenting his admiration for their signature, bespoke carpet design by Pierre Frey during a recent visit.
Moreover, the iconic Parisian duo M/M (Paris) are behind the venue’s graphic identity, elegantly solving the naming conundrum for Frisch and enhancing the overall aesthetic experience. Specialised ceramicists Marion Graux, Camille Esnée and artists Suzie Lapierre D’Argy (Forma) were commissioned to craft unique tableware, adding an artisanal touch to the dining experience.
Yet, Silencio des Prés is more than the sum of these elements. Each Silencio venue is a ‘factory of ideas,’ a social hub for serendipitous encounters, intellectual exchanges, and the incubation of inspiration. The venues have always been seen as nurturing grounds where business can transform into pleasure, and the seemingly impossible can morph into reality.
Silencio des Prés is poised to continue this legacy, promising a space that fosters creativity and collaboration while delivering a world-class culinary experience and unique cultural events.
In the spirit of Silencio’s established tradition, Silencio des Prés will also host a curated programme of events, ensuring the venue will be as lively as it is delicious. A selection of cutting-edge film screenings, avant-garde live music, thought-provoking talks, and exciting exhibits will grace the space. This cultural dynamism will reaffirm the spot’s reputation as a sophisticated, modern-day salon for artists and thinkers alike.
And when the sun sets, the terrace will transform into a captivating evening hangout. With views overlooking the picturesque streets of the Saint-Germain-des-Prés, it promises to be a hotspot for summer soirées and romantic dinners under the stars. The aesthetics of the space, coupled with its innovative and varied offerings, will mark a new chapter for the beloved district.
