A pure setting for pouring a mix of teas
The space’s white envelope differentiates itself from the spirit of traditional tea houses, with their colonial style or dark woods. The transparent glass façade creates an atmosphere of reflections, mist and white snow that evokes the Russian glassmaking tradition. The elegance of silkscreen printed glass, the light-colored marble, floors in white gouged wood, the clean lines and the finishes create a feminine and refined atmosphere in perfect harmony with the new collection of Wellness Teas.
Parisian life with slavic soul
The dominant use of white showcases Kusmi Tea’s emblematic baroque-style packaging. Revisited Russian nesting dolls guide visitors from the boutique to the restaurant upstairs. In homage to the brand’s founder, the Café Kousmichoff welcomes visitors in a cosmopolitan setting that mixes Slavic soul with the feel of a New York City loft, illuminated by Ruskii Twist pendant lights reminiscent of the domes of Saint Basil’s Cathedral. Seated on loungey Silvera banquettes or Alki bar stools, customers sample reinterpreted Russian cuisine accompanied by a glass of vodka or Roederer champagne, once the official supplier of the Russian Imperial Court, while contemplating the view of the Champs-Elysées.
