Could it be the solution created by a French designer to easily protect customers in the restaurant?
After a sleepless night, the next morning, talented French designer Christophe Gernigon gets up with an idea. Build one protective bubble "Single portion" for customers who go to the restaurant, one for each cover, inspired by the hairdresser's helmet that he had seen so much from his 98-year-old grandmother Memè. Since his landing from Normandy in Paris, he had already had many ideas in his career as a designer, but the plexiglass helmet designed to dine safely at the restaurant, in a world distressed by Covid19, really seems to be the turning point. He runs to a trusted craftsman and together they make the first prototype. "I wanted something protective, but aesthetic at the same time, that would reassure but not imprisoned, and where the acoustics would be perfect" says Gernigon. And then here is the "bubble" renamed Plex'Eat, of a special light and thin plexiglass, to be easily sanitized at every change of service. Single or larger for couples, Gernigon with this idea is traveling around the world. Japan, the United States, Australia and of course France, are just some of the countries from which orders rain because it seems to be the solution that restaurateurs are looking for. «There will be an intriguing lamp shade effect on the head and it can also work for shops. Many jewelers and certain offices have asked for it even though the restaurant remains the ideal place, "he adds. «It measures 80 cm in diameter and 60 to climb and rests on a metal ring. It is very easy to disassemble, clean and put back in place .
And if you are going to say that it is all plastic, Christophe replies: "in reality we have used a recycled and recyclable material that can last up to a year if treated well". And now the crucial question, the cost. «150 euros VAT excluded for each helmet. It is produced by Sitour.
