Campanas’ Café at Musée d’Orsay


Paris’ Musée d’Orsay art museum will fully reopen at the end of October after an extensive two-year refurbishment with a brand new café, designed by Brazilian design duo Fernando and Humberto Campana.

Eschewing the classic styling of traditional Parisian bistro interiors, the Campana brothers’ quirky revamped café features curvy, polyurethane chairs, fragmented lamps and scribble-shaped screens in twisted orange metal. The only item to noticeably remain untouched, as a romantic focal point, is the old railway station clock.

As well as the café, the refurbishment works also include a refreshed Impressionist gallery, a new temporary exhibition space, and a four-storey pavilion dedicated to the decorative arts.
