Argentinian Cooking and Everything Custom at Carbón in Paris

February 12, 2018

Last summer, couple Sabrina Goldin and Stéphane Abby opened Carbón, an Argentinian restaurant in the middle of the Marais in Paris. Sabrina is an Argentine industrial designer and Stéphane comes from a family of furniture makers in the Côte d’Ivoire. The two have a passion for open-flame cooking and natural elements (Carbón, they say, is “an ode to nature”). The restaurant interior, from designers Patrice Daoud and Sveto Ekmescic, features Italian stone, brick salvaged from Serbia, custom furniture, swing-arm pendant lights, and more. Here’s a look.

Over the custom oak door is a Well Glass Bulkhead Fixture from Belgian company Zangra. Sabrina and Stéphane came up with the idea for an open-flame menu as an evolution of their first project, a food truck called the Asado Club, then another truck—Maison Wafflegänger—and a restaurant called Empanadas on the Canal Saint-Martin. At Carbón, chef Thibaut Marlin heads up the kitchen.

The restaurant is renovated with stone sourced from Italy and red brick found in an old house in Serbia. Sabrina and Stéphane thought about the interior design from a residential perspective, designing it like a home with houseplants, large wall mirrors, and versatile lighting.

The furniture is all custom: slatted benches with leather cushions, oak chairs, and marble-top tables.
