Plouk takes designer of the year award

Montreal’s Plouk Design received a 2500 award as the Montreal Designer of the Year last month at the city’s annual interior design exhibition, SIDIM.

The group, founded in 1988 by Christian Bélanger and Jean-Guy Chabauty, has just completed the interiors for a new 185m2 Italian restaurant, Misto.

The restaurant seats 100 people and is located on the city’s Mont Royal. “The atmosphere is sexy and relaxing,” says Plouk Design co-owner Christian Bélanger.

“There are no references to the classic – the interiors are typically modern,” he adds. Two types of wood were used for the striped floor and the walls were stripped back to natural brick.

A spokeswoman for SIDIM says of Plouk Design: “Beyond the originality of its concepts and the creativity which have always constituted its soul, the group has shown its deep awareness of the demands of the market.”
