French designer Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance has fitted out a restaurant at the top of the tallest skyscraper in central Paris.
Named Ciel de Paris, the new restaurant is located on the 56th floor of the Montparnasse Tower, which at 210-metres-high is taller than everything else around it bar the Eiffel Tower.
Warm lighting glows out from behind the circular mirrors covering the ceiling, as well as around the edges of the room and from beneath the curved central bar.
Chairs designed by Duchaufour-Lawrance feature smooth grey resin and fibreglass shells with orange leather linings.

Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance has designed a soft and profound amber bubble of light on the 56th floor of the Montparnasse Tower: the new Ciel de Paris restaurant interior design and furniture.
From the bay windows to the central bar, depending on the aura of the mirrors, the skilled composition of the sombre reflections strengthens and transforms perspectives. The view becomes space; space becomes the view.
The golden glints of the City of Light bounce off the sensual curves and materials. Paris is sparkling and all of a sudden the tower is more desirable. This primarily touristic venue has become welcoming and ethereal, a pleasurable experience designed for everyone.
