Sofitel Luxury Hotels unveils design of Sofitel Paris Arc de Triomphe
Sofitel Luxury Hotels has unveiled the design of its first hotel in Paris, the Sofitel Paris Arc de Triomphe, which is designed by Studio Putman as a combination of elegance and modernity.
Located at a stone’s throw from the Champs-Elysées, Sofitel Paris Arc de Triomphe features a Parisian-style from Studio Putman which resembles a pied-à-terre, based on soft, soothing colours, simple, basic lines and a subtle interplay of materials.
At the Sofitel Paris Arc de Triomphe, the whole concept of the hotel room, especially the space's function, has been re-imagined based on a layout of volumes that updates traditional luxury hotel codes. The key to this concept lies in the spaces' modular nature, allowing guests to feel at home and live.
A soothing sense of wellbeing reassures travellers as soon as they walk in. The soft colours and attention to materials offer a serene atmosphere. A parquet floor is included in the design which brings Haussmannian interiors to mind.
Guests are greeted by epigrams by Andrée Putman on pearl grey walls, such as: "Being modern doesn't mean being trendy. Trends go out of style. Modernity never does because it is a founding principle."
The bedrooms feature a leather banquette which faces the traditional Paris bistro table reinterpreted by the Studio Putman. Silk cushions illustrated with Turgot's legendary map of Paris recall the city's rich architectural heritage.
The room's design is based on two main ideas: rest and wellbeing. These are echoed through MyBed, Sofitel's exclusive bedding concept. In the centre of the room, the bed rests against a cotton sheer headboard flanked by two luminous cubes that give off a soothing blue glow at bedtime.
The bathroom takes up half the space to promote relaxation, wellbeing and harmony, and features the mosaic dear to the Studio Putman. In the suites, the island bathtub features light therapy for relaxation and absolute equilibrium.
The hotel is still undergoing refurbishment which will continue until summer, and will gradually reveal all its spaces, including the restaurant.
