The ‘Maître Pâtissier’ Cédric Grolet is a very talented chef, who has been awarded several prizes for his patisserie, including the Gault Millau Pâtissier of the Year and the Best Pastry Chef by 50 Best, in 2019. Take a look at his Paris apartment, featuring Neolith sintered stone.

A pupil of Christophe Adam, (former pastry chef at Fauchon), and Alain Ducasse, Grolet is renowned for his iconographic patisserie, which includes cake shapes from Rubik’s Cube, or desserts replicating perfectly the freshly picked fruit.

Neolith, a material perfect for the kitchen

Creativity and accuracy typical of his patisserie set the standard for his recently refurbished Parisian apartment. The main role, of course, is played by the kitchen, the space where Cédric Grolet can express his talent.

To feel free to work without any kind of worries, Grolet went in search of a hygienic, anti-bacterial, stain-resistant, scratch-resistant and wear-resistant kitchen top material.

Neolith sintered stone proved to be perfect to fulfil these requirements, with no porosity and easy cleaning, and the selected finish, Estatuario Silk (Silk Statue), features a neutral colour, the perfect background for Instagram pictures.

Neolith fits perfectly into the interior architecture of Cédric Grolet’s apartment, thanks to its harmonious contrast with the light wooden floors, the limestone walls and the pure white woodworking of the boiserie.

The skill of Jules Léger, from Marbrerie Contemporaine, created the wall panelling, as well as the work island counter with the hob, and the counter with the washing area. The result is an elegant and sober style, essential, with no need to add any decoration.

Neolith white Calacatta for stylish bathrooms

The Calacatta Polished finishing has been used for the large top with integrated washbasin, which completes the master bedroom, as a backdrop enlightening the room, creating a movie set atmosphere, essential yet dramatic.

Finally, the sintered stone Neolith Iron Frost is the perfect background for the open walk-in shower in the guest room: here the whiteness of the material highlights the clean lines of the furniture.
