“Art is part of my life” says Guy Savoy (3 Michelin stars), so much so he decided to take advantage of his collection of works of art on a daily basis by displaying them in his restaurant on rue Troyon, 75017 Paris, designed by Jean-Michel Wilmotte. His collection has expanded over the course of his travels and according to his tastes since he was first initiated by one of Alechinsky’s lithographies at the age of 27. African sculptures stand alongside collages by Georges Autard (who designs a collectors’ greetings card every year), oil paintings by Fabrice Hyber and steel creations by Jean-Pierre Rives.
For Guy Savoy, art helps us to keep an open, inquiring mind, to recharge our batteries, to develop our sensitivity and our sense of aesthetics.
Art can also be found on each table, as the Goutte d’eau uses tableware (salt and pepper pots, butter dishes) designed by Laurent Beyne in colourful cut glass and one-off presentation plates designed by Virginia Mo.
In January 2013 the restaurant will be moving to the Monnaie de Paris (11 quai Conti, 75006 Paris) which will be refurbished as part of the Metalmorphose project (  We will be able to discover a new design, still by Jean-Michel Wilmotte, with new displays and in particular a monumental piece by Fabienne Verdier and other surprises on loan by François Pinault.
