La Durée famous for its macarons, is a French luxury bakery and sweets maker house created in 1862. It is one of the world’s best-known premier sellers of the double-decker macaron, with an astonishing quantity of fifteen thousand sold every day. The French Maison has asked architect and designer India Mahdavi to create a new concept in Geneva inside the Four Seasons Hotel.

Shades of a pinkish lavender and forest green combine with sexy curving shapes of the puce bench seats, which are set against a background of black and white diamond-motif tiles to create an elegant ambience. Basically everything such as the allover round shapes and color palette used echoes the design of their famous macaron sweets.
