Design Dossier: Hotels. Translation and Re-conception sample from Luxos Magazine
Note: this Luxos example is presented in the original British English
Spirit- Architect Edouard François brought new life to the hotel, situated on the Champs Elysées, and celebrated interior designer Jacques Garcia took command of the palace’s decoration, leaving us with an exceptionally warm and contemporary space in the heart of classic Parisian luxury.
Design: Elements of the chic and luxurious resonate in every corner, across precious marble, baroque-era antique furniture, and gigantic mirrors. Visually, black and gold are added to muted beige and cream tones, and the mixture has never looked so good.
The extra touch- Space is optimised, meticulously planned so that the rooms breathe life and rich, clean air. Nothing is left to chance.
Bonus- The sublime terrace, with its granite and slate floor and large black sofas... we could spend entire days looking out over the balcony onto the Arc de Triomphe....
Design and High Tech
Spirit-: This place speaks to us as soon as we penetrate the sombre northern Parisian street, where a glass cube rises forth like a proclamation from the asphalt. As though it were a decompression chamber, this space serves as the entryway before arriving at the main building. The hotel’s goal of providing a sense of "Fresh Spirit" throughout is carefully and beautifully achieved.
Design: By its appellation and by the presence of the "Ice Kube", the only bar in France made entirely of ice, the hotel plays with temperatures and succeeds in creating a warm ambiance in a glacial atmosphere. Large sofas in fake fur replace traditional armchairs, while a particular softened light is created by red LEDs designed especially for the bar.
The extra touch: An incredible sound. Their revolutionary amplification system renders the DJ sets infectious.
Bonus: No need to carry that key-card! Rooms are accessible by digital fingerprints.
