La Cantine du Voyage
La colline
Appelle-moi Papa

In keeping with their desire to add colour and reaffirm La Cantine’s warm and convivial atmosphere, Appelle moi papa dreamt up La Colline (“the hill”). With its round and generous forms, La Colline is a whimsical, technicolor land where you can climb, roll around, slide, play, lay around – and more!

The “Cantine du Voyage” has opened its doors with a brand new visual identity cooked up by Nantes graphic design collective Appelle moi papa, which can be found everywhere from the signage, to the décor, placemats, tickets and products sold inside. On the menu are organic forms, with a leafy atmosphere, candy box colours and simple shapes.

Appelle moi papa is a collective made up of five graphic designers. Founded on the old saying, “Strength in numbers,” Appelle-moi papa plays with images and explores personal worlds while never betraying a deeply held desire for originality and nonconformity. Appelle moi papa has worked with musical groups like Christine & The Queens or Luce, and designed the graphic design for many cultural events, created its own line of t-shirts, and more…

It’s in the Cantine!

Nantes is transforming

Nantes is changing to become an even more ecological, inclusive, and dynamic city. To do this, new public works will reinforce our already existing ecofriendly modes of transport: new tram lines, green zones for pedestrians and cyclists, and more. From 2024, these major urban projects will disrupt traffic around Les Machines de l’Île and Parc des Chantiers, with the Pont Anne-de-Bretagne bridge closed off to cars (the bridge will remain accessible to pedestrians and cyclists). Solutions will be offered throughout construction to make it easier for everyone to get around, like: increased frequency of several public transport lines, more Naolib bike-share bicycles, and more parking spots in park-and-ride lots.
