  • Plastic cones suspended over the faces of patrons might be the new trend for restaurants reopening their doors during the pandemic. 
  • The Plex’Eat is a plastic shield created by French designer Christophe Gernigon to block germs from passing from one restaurant patron to the next. 
  • Gernigon told the Associated Press he already has over 200 inquiries from restaurants for Plex’Eats in five countries. 
  • Bars and restaurants face unique complications in reopening because customers can’t eat without removing their masks.

Clear plastic cones hang suspended above customers at Parisian restaurant H.A.N.D. this week in a creative attempt to keep patrons safe as eateries across Europe, and across the world, reopen their doors. 

The plastic shields are a prototype called Plex’Eat created by French designer Christophe Gernigon. They are made of plexiglass and resemble lampshades.

Gernigon told the Associated Press he was inspired after visiting a store in Bangkok “with three individual domes with chairs where people would sit and listen to music.”
