Dior Hotel Lyon, France
Jean Philippe Nuel, a French designer, layed the powerful buildings of the building with contrasting details (inspired by the history of the monastery) behind the 375 meter grand facade, creating what he called “modest luxury”. “In the middle ages, these h 彼 Tel dieus hotels were designed to accommodate people who were sick and people in need,” Nuel explained “However, this did not prevent architects from creating excellent and luxurious spaces in the prime.”
The best results can be seen in the lobby of the hotel, where simple whitewood beams and bare stone floors (with alabaster from the quarry, reopened for the project) are made by vernique de soultrait, a local decorative silk and rope net decorator. “The screen in the hall inspired my entire hotel, which is a dichotomy between refinement and monastery,” Nuel explained
Elsewhere, absurd high arched ceilings, restored stone sculptures and large arch windows form a hidden corner and an impressive backdrop for the complex suite, which is located on two floors and enjoys the view of the river Rona. But the highlight is almost certainly the bar, which is located in a front church under a 32 meter dome. Here, Manuela Paul Cavallier’s bold artwork reveals the modern black and gold palette; the custom furniture made by French company ligne ROSET reflects the curve of the building; the silk rich silk created by verel de belval, a silk company of Lyonnais, a subsidiary of Hermes group, represents the past of the city as the capital of the European silk industry.
